Essential services that continue to operate during the Covid-19 pandemic have faced the challenge of managing and maintaining their critical assets while complying with new safety precautions. Sites that rely on equipment and materials handling inspections/audits, above water assessments by boat or underwater operations to conduct inspections of critical infrastructure have been particularly impacted, with the typical safety considerations around personnel and divers preparing to enter the water complicating matters further. During this period Ausenco has assisted a number of clients to safely conduct above and below underwater asset integrity inspections at sites such as industrial commodity, oil and gas refineries and ferry terminals.

Presented by Tony Bleasdale, Director of Maritime Asset Management for Ausenco’s Transportation and Logistics group, this webinar will look at the measures the Ausenco team took to enable these inspections to continue for clients. The webinar will discuss:

  • Asset integrity and management activities for essential services
  • The precautions taken to ensure safe field and dive operations during social distancing
  • Examples of recent projects and clients’ perspectives
