Annually, since 2013, when six inland ports where surveyed, VRT has surveyed infrastructure for one of Europe’s largest inland port operators . Previously they had little knowledge of their underwater structures due to poor underwater visibility.
Conducted with regular intervals in the recent years, VRT’s sonar surveys allowed the client to undertake targeted repairs on critical quayside locations and to monitor areas not of immediate concern, allowing for cost savings in underwater repairs and optimized budgeting.
All damage and structural variations found in the surveys have been clearly displayed by VRT, and the location of those accurately pinpointed for decision-making and optimised lifecycle management.
We are very satisfied with the results of VRTs harbour inspection. The documentation is a very good base for further decisions and gives a detailed view on the conditions of the wall
