👷♂️ In January 2022, partner ROBOPLANET travelled to Portugal to do some testing with partner Arsenal do Alfeite, S.A. (AASA).
The goal was to evaluate the new UT_Crawler for ship inspection. External ship hull inspection are requested by class societies to allow ships to take the sea.
⚓During the week, AASA organised a visit of the port and tests on structural elements. Under the supervision of the shipyard NDT team including UT level 3, the ALTISCAN_V2 performed good results. The crawler will receive its on-purpose adaptation then be delivered for an operational evaluation.
🙏 Thanks to Jean-Marie Brussieux and Guillaume Serre from Roboplanet, Dina Dimas and Cristina Falcão from Arsenal Do Alfeite and Paulo Sousa Dias, João Borges de Sousa and Maria Costa from Universidade do Porto/LSTS FEUP, for making this field trip possible.
