How to provide safe and smart port operations while maintaining competitiveness?

Smart port of the future is built with digital solutions and new technologies that offer ports of any size valuable and more comprehensive insight into operations, asset management and predictive maintenance. Underwater multibeam sonar inspections and detailed 3D survey data make it safe and easy for ports and harbors to have a clear and complete view of the condition of their structures by digitizing underwater assets in all phases of the structures’ life-cycle.

Safe data collection for planning, construction and project management

Regular sonar surveys are essential for gaining knowledge on the accumulation or erosion of the seabed sediment in order to maintain a safe clearance depth and safeguard the structure. With our innovative multibeam technology, scheduled inspections can be carried out with minimal to no interruptions to the port traffic, while providing competitive advantage of being at the cutting edge of 3D technologies and smart port industry.

Smart data management and utilisation for maintenance planning and long-term monitoring

As your smart port partner, we see you through the whole inspection process – from the survey site to utilising 3D data. To help you in smart asset management, we deliver our inspection reports via VRT BIM browser-based online service, which allows you to easily go through the inspection data, make measurements and check the location of possible damages yourself, without any additional softwares. The data can be stored as baseline data for future inspections and change comparisons, allowing easy data management and smarter maintenance planning.

Not our first time behind the wheel – get to know a few of our port customers:


“We got a good overview of the seabed and identified some previously undiscovered problems on our quay walls. Our cooperation worked really well already before as well as during and after the inspection. The service provided by VRT was excellent”

Anders Eriksen, Head of Port Engineering, Aarhus Port

”For us, it was important to see if there was any obstructions, debris or structural damage that need targeted maintenance or that could prevent the planned dredging project. With the 3D data delivered to us through VRT’s online service, we can follow the tendencies and history of the structural changes to put our efforts in predictive maintenance”

Svein Tore Nordhagen, Harbourmaster, Port of Mo i Rana

“Cooperation with VRT is the basis for our long-term maintenance. The detailed 3D data delivered to us through VRT BIM online-service provides us with crucial information that is needed to support proactive asset integrity management. VRT’s inspections are an economical way of mapping our entire area. We have chosen VRT because they can carry out both the inspections above and under water simultaneously”
