UTM measurement services

Ultrasonic Hull Thickness

Our main kinds of activities

  1. Thickness measurement and fault detection of ship’s hull and ships constructions:
    UTM for Class Surveys (all types, incl. ESP Vessels) UTM for Owners Condition Survey UTM for CAP Survey Multiple echo digital gauges provide accurate thickness measurement through paint coatings without chipping or damaging the coating
  2. Thickness measurements of pipelines, pressure tanks, boilers, steam pipes, calibration of anchor chain cables
  3. Rope access (in providing of Close-up Survey and thickness measurement), well as steeplejack works with the use of TV for visual examination of hull
  4. Preparation of all necessary documentation according to requirements of the following Class Societies:
    Lloyds Register (LR), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Germanisher Lloyd (GL), Bureau Veritas (BV), Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RMRS), Nippon Kaiji Kyokai, Rina, ABS, Polski Rejestr Statkow, Korean Register of Shipping, Bulgarian Register of Shipping, State Maritime Administration Estonian Maritime Administration, Latvian Maritime Administration
  5. Steel condition assessment (visual inspection & UTM & Photography), providing draft reports at sea during voyage, calculation of steel renewal weights, professional assistance for making D-Docking Specification, choosing the right Shipyard
  6. Supervising during repairs or D-Docking and as result the reducing total quantity of replaced steel
  7. Performs works by calculation of residual thickness with the subsequent calculation of durability cases of vessel and change of navigation condition
  8. Quality control of the welding seams by the ultrasound.
  9. Spatial and geodesy measurements of ship’s hull and steel structures in an arbitrarily assumed coordinate frame (plotting ship body lines, straightness measurements etc.), shaft line alignment
  10. Design works on conversion and repair of ships by hull part
  11. Strength calculations
