Following the theft of its remote control inspection instrument, Capital Asset Maintenance was able to hire a replacement from Ashtead Technology with just a few hours’ notice.

The immediate provision of an operational system meant that work could continue and Capital’s railway inspection contract was not put at risk.

Cardiff-based Capital Asset Maintenance contacted Ashtead for a Rovver 255 inspection crawler on the afternoon of the day that its unit was stolen and following Ashtead’s response, it was able to collect a fully calibrated 225 model, along with a Honda generator to power it, the next day.

The equipment was needed to examine a culvert next to a railway line in Swansea.

Access to the culvert, which required cleaning, was restricted and potentially hazardous, which meant that remote visual inspection equipment, such as the Rovver 225, was required to conduct an internal survey.

Geraint Rees from Capital Asset Maintenance, said: ‘We needed the Rovver 225 for a three-day investigation of a large railway culvert and following the theft of our own instrument, we did not have much time to source a new one.

‘Thankfully our emergency request was answered by Ashtead and a fully calibrated Rovver 225 was ready to collect the following morning.’ The Rovver 225 is the latest addition to Ashtead’s hire fleet of pipe inspection crawler systems, designed specifically to investigate pipes and tunnels ranging from 300mm to 1200mm in diameter.

Additionally, the remote control camera unit enables the operator to raise and lower the camera, change zoom and orientation and control the focus and lighting levels to ensure optimum viewing conditions in any investigation.
