Offshore and Coastal Loading Jetty are vital components in the safe landing space for boats and a means of protection against waves.

The visual inspection of these often complex structures has always been a time consuming, labour intensive process yet a vital requirement for their safe day to day use.

At Balmore Inspection Services, we can provide aerial and underwater drone inspection of jetties across the North Sea, Scotland and the North of England. Our remotely piloted aerial drone and underwater drone can cover almost every aspect of the structure of a jetty.

The difficult to access underwater aspect of a jetty is now an easily accessed point with our underwater drones which can replace the need to put human life at risk for visual NDT. Our aerial drone inspection can be completed in a fraction of the time of traditional labour intensive methods.

Replacing existing Jetty Inspection methods

With a complete land, sea and air inspection service focused on non destructive testing (NDT), our drone services for the marine sector are scalable to meet the requirements of our clients and their visual inspection needs. From detailed, thermal scanning to 3D modelling as part of structural inspection of key infrastructure assets, we have built a name for ourselves as one of the leading drone inspection service providers in the UK.
