Abyss successfully inspected the Prospect Water Filtration Plant (PWFP) which provides clean drinking water to 85% of Sydney’s population.

The aim of the inspection was to identify and locate faults and features inside filtered water channels, pumps and inlet structures. Abyss used its unique aquatic drone which is equipped with high fidelity imaging sensors and specialized light rig for imaging in raw water and poorly illuminated environments.

The drone has an accurate internal position sensor which tracks the location of the robot and allows all data captured to be precise georeferenced. Abyss delivered a cost-effective condition assessment of the filtration plant and interactive 3D model of faults, with annotation.
