Final Report - FPSO-INSPECT (Non-Intrusive In-service Inspection Robotic System for Condition Monitoring of Welds inside Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Vessels)

Project ID: 508599
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the publishable final activity report of the FPSO-INSPECT project. The objective of the project was the development of a robot vehicle that would detect damage from corrosion and fatigue in the floor plates and stiffeners of FPSO tanks and that would meet the criteria set by the end-users.

The report provides a summary of the project's main objectives, as well as of the techniques for detection of corrosion and fatigue that where investigated during the project. It goes on providing a general overview of the design of the robot vehicle and of the scanner.
