Bureau reports a 900% rise in remote inspection demand

Bureau Veritas is reporting a 900% rise in demand for the remote inspection of offshore assets and equipment since the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Bureau Veritas says requests for its remote inspection, certification, examination and verification services has escalated from a ‘want’ to a ‘need’ this year as businesses seek to keep employees safe from the coronavirus.

Through the use of mobile cameras and the existing personnel, Bureau Veritas employees can carry out these essential services remotely onshore, limiting close contact and reducing the need for travel.

Bureau Veritas has risk profiled activities and identified which inspections can be performed remotely and which can’t to help operators and oilfield service companies plan for the year ahead, benefiting from direct and indirect savings as well as reducing carbon footprint in the process. Where physical inspection is unavoidable, an up-front technical and safety assessment underpins the reduction and/or elimination of risk at the site.

Other advantages include reductions in personnel risk, time and cost by eliminating travel to client premises, fewer on-site inspections, accommodation requirements, improved green credential and instant accessibility to a broad spectrum of subject matter experts qualified to perform the task.
