Offshore Weather Mast CVI

Project


Our client required drone inspection to check for potential dropped objects (DROPS) on an Offshore Weather Mast located within a Wind Farm in the Moray Firth. The Weather Mast was due to be decommissioned and the client required a team to board the structure safely to assist with preparatory works for the decommissioning project and to recover various items and equipment to clear the asset.


Client: Renewables Operator

Location: Moray Firth, Scotland

Deliverable: Close Visual Inspection

Project Duration: 2 Mobilisations


Challenges


  • Sea State

  • Limited Take-off / Landing area on vessel

  • Side winds

  • Offshore weather conditions


Solution


Works were completed over two mobilisations, with the drone inspection being completed promptly once CTV arrived on site to maximise site time for the decommissioning team on the Mast.


The drone was deployed from the back deck of the CTV prior to the vessel approaching the structure. No issues were identified on the structure during the flight and the client was also able to verify footage on a secondary screen during the flights. Once the team were satisfied there were no DROP risks, they proceeded to board the mast.
