ROV Bathes in Whisky - 15/07/2016


McPherson Ltd, one of the biggest whisky road hauliers in Scotland, have purchased an AC-ROV 100 to examine the internal welds, baffles and valves of their tankers to meet the UK period inspection requirements.

Ian Jamieson, Fleet Engineering Director of McPherson Ltd, said that using the AC-ROV avoids the high risk ‘man-in-tank’. Ian sees the AC-ROV 100 as the way forward for capturing evidence of the inspection. The date and time marked video survey is recorded real-time onto a SD card built into the AC-ROV system. The file can be transferred or referred to in the future by any auditing authority or McPherson technicians the next time each tanker goes through an inspection.
