AEA Technology helped develop this robot to inspect steel tubes for corrosion in water up to 12m deep, one of the most dangerous jobs for divers on offshore oil and gas platforms. Developed with Ocean Industries and AEA’s Australian partner PNDT, the Big Robotic Ultrasonic Caisson Inspection Equipment (Brucie) will spare divers from hazards ranging from strong currents, which can dash them against the structure, to shark attack.
