Challenge

Inspectahire was tasked with carrying out inspections on subsea crossings between the mainland West Coast of Scotland and the Outer Hebrides on behalf of Scottish Water. The inspections were to assess the integrity of their assets and any maintenance required.

The crossings carry fresh water between the island chain and provide a vital service to the islands’ inhabitants.

Solution

Using market-leading equipment and proven inspection techniques Inspectahire’s experienced personnel began on the Isle of Lewis and over a period of two months provided a high level of asset integnity inspections efficiently and accurately on ten crossings between the islands and the mainland West Coast.

The first stage was Sonar / Geo-mapping inspection to give the first indication of the condition of the crossings.

This was followed by a 100% visual inspection carried out using subsea cameras, Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs) with Crawler Skid Attachments (CSAs).

A number of diving inspections were also carried out on the crossing by Inspectahire’s team of in-house divers and equipment supported by Puffin Dive Centre from Oban. All diving was carried out by qualified HSE Scuba divers complying with the HSE Approved Code of Practice for in-shore diving.

Sonar, ROV and Diving Operations were carried out from Inspectahire’s RIB 'Moray Gig'.

Result

Inspectahire’s multi disciplined team carried out all ten inspections on time and budget with great results for the client.
