Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Assurance

ADC Energy Ltd. ROV inspection


Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) are essential to delivering Offshore projects.  For this reason ADC believe an ROV audit should go beyond IMCA standards and should be looked at as a complete package rather than standalone equipment.

ADC’s ROV assurance include reviewing the mobilisation plan prior to equipment load out and pre-mobilisation onshore equipment checks to give our clients confidence that the system is operational before it arrives offshore.
