Description

Abyss Solutions conducted an underwater inspection of part of the outlet works of Ned Churchward Weir. The work aimed to demonstrate Abyss Solutions’ remote underwater imaging capabilities in turbid environments.

Inspection Overview

The inspection was conducted using Abyss Solutions’ underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) equipped with high-fidelity imaging and sonar systems. High-fidelity imagery of intake screen and flow control gate were captured while sonar imaging was used to inspect the outlet tunnel for any obstructions and debris.

Outcome

Abyss Solutions successfully conducted inspection of the intake screen, flow control gate and the outlet tunnel. High-fidelity imagery of the intake screen and flow control gate were captured. The imagery produced were of superior detail and color information than that of standard imagery. Sonar imaging of the tunnel revealed that it was clear of any obstructions and large debris.
