Bridge inspection

City of Regensburg

VRT Finland helped City of Regensburg manage their underwater assets by inspecting the bridge structures and the riverbed of a 12th-century bridge, the Stone Bridge (Steinerne Brücke), in Germany. The City of Regensburg needed a method for underwater inspections, which could provide more details compared to traditional inspections methods for monitoring the condition of bridge infrastructure.

Dam structure inspections

Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment

VRT Finland surveyed the dam structures of a former flood retention basin, which has later been harnessed also for electricity production, for the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment for Southern Ostrobothnia in Finland. During the inspection in murky waters, two different dam structures were extensively measured.

Canal inspection

Finnish Traffic Agency

VRT has studied the condition of Finnish waterways together with The Finnish transport agency (FTA), since 2012. FTA has been a pioneer in using sonar inspection to facilitate asset management of underwater structures, and the results from VRT are used to schedule future inspection, plan maintenance regimes and reduce the risk related to waterways traffic.
