Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, ClassNK and Hitachi Systems have completed a demonstration test of a ship class survey using aerial drones to inspect an MOL-operated coal carrier in service.

The test included a simulated ship inspection inside the cargo hold and ballast tank, using video shot from an aerial drone, and is claimed to have verified the effectiveness of using drones to monitor rust, corrosion, and the presence of cracks.

The use of drone is expected to contribute to improved operational safety and efficiency, since these processes require work to be done at great heights and in dangerous environments.

The technological innovation is certainly helpful in conducting surveys. The drones may be guided through all the inaccessible ares.
