A pioneer in class-approved drone inspections, Delft, Netherlands-based RIMS (Robotics in Maintenance Strategies) BV, has now set up a sister company to focus on the drone and ROV elements of its business.
Called Global Drone Inspection (GDI), the new company will provide all the services related to inspections of assets by drones and ROVs, including 3D modeling, while RIMS will continue to support clients with the development and integration of new technologies within their maintenance strategies.
“With GDI, we aim to provide a center of expertise in remote inspection technology which can be easily found by clients who need a specialist in this domain.” said David Knukkel, CEO, GDI & RIMS. “GDI will build on the experience and success of RIMS which was set up in 2015. In last five years RIMS has brought the drone service to a professional level, and was the first maritime class approved service provider, supporting surveyors with the inspection of ship structures, mobile offshore units and confined spaces using Remote Inspection Technology, and it is our intention to replicate this level of success for GDI.”
GDI will be looking to strengthen its portfolio in line with future trends through partnership creation with well recognized partners and service suppliers, offering a total solution for inspections, NDT-measurements (non-destructive testing), presentation of information and repairs.
