Class surveys are conducted to ensure compliance with technical standards for the construction and operation of ships and offshore structures. It has become common practice for classification societies such as ABS, DNV, Lloyd’s Register, etc. to utilise rope access to access structures, carry out inspections, and report findings to the class surveyor.
We have extensive experience in planning and execution of class surveys including project management, development of reporting structures in accordance with the respective class society requirements, as well as rope access, inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT). We provide safe and efficient project execution with minimal disruption to operation.
We can conduct in-situ maintenance and repair of class-related non-conformances including structural repairs, hull coating maintenance, cathodic protection replacements, and more.
Next Advanced Solutions offers highly qualified personnel as well as state-of-the-art inspection technology to conduct and support class surveys. These services include, but are not limited to:
- Rope access
