Cargo Ships

Ballast Tanks 

These hard to reach compartments are at the depths of a cargo ship, making them GPS-denied areas. Just recently, our team flew inside the ballast tanks of a 1,000 ft. cargo ship. These no-light areas have many hard to reach sections and are quickly glanced through during a traditional inspection. Use our newly released photo measurement software to quantify various parts of the ballast tank and track corrosion & pitting growth over time as shown below:

"Personal safety, rapid accurate surveys and planned outage for asset management are just a few reasons we are pursuing high technologies as tools to improve current operations. As we discovered in the use of Underwater Submersibles, they save time, money and improve safety - we will take that to the air as well."

Dry Bulk Cargo Holds 

These wide-open steel areas closely resemble the same principles of aboveground storage tanks, where the vehicle was initially designed for. The unpackaged cargo hold can contain various substances such as coal, iron ore, taconite, and even agricultural products such as various grains.

LNG & Oil Tanker Ships 

Maybe your company utilizes liquid natural gas ships for transportation or even propulsion. By cooling natural gas from its gaseous form to a liquid, it shrinks 600 times its size, making it very effective to transport as a liquid. It is vital to inspect the inner most internal layer of this double lined tank to ensure the LNG is contained. Drones like the Legacy One can save thousands of dollars in an initial internal inspection of an LNG tank.  

Or maybe your company owns an oil tanker that has similar demands as an LNG ship. This steel, dark area is a perfect fit for the Legacy One’s high resolution camera and optimally paired 5,000 lumen LED light.
