ROV Inspection for AECOM


Client: AECOM Australia, Webb Dock East, Port Melbourne, Victoria.

Project: ROV services for video inspection, high pressure water blasting and Ultrasonic Thickness Testing (UTT) on subsea structures, including sheet pile walls at Webb Dock East, Port Melbourne, Victoria.

Dive Works provided ROV services to conduct inspections of sheet pile walls at specific locations at the Port Melbourne dock. The services included a complete visual of all the sheet piles over several hundred metres using high resolution cameras on the ROV. Then by using a high pressure water blaster mounted on the ROV, with pressures up to 10,000 psi, the sheet pile was cleaned in specific areas. Ultrasonic Thickness Testing was then conducted to assist with the ongoing monitoring of the subsea structures.

This project was completed while the ship was docked at Port Melbourne, using the Dive Works inspection class ROV system. Dive Works ROV system is safer, faster and more economical than using divers. By using the ROV instead of divers the ship didn’t have to do a complete shut down and tagging out of stern gear and thrusters thus allowing the routine maintenance to be carried out. This also enabled the ship to sail out on time
