SUITS Aims to Make Space Casualties a Thing of the Past

Posted by January 4, 2018

SUITS has been developed by Martek Marine Ltd to improve the safety of surveyors and crew members when inspecting tanks, eliminating the need to enter hazardous, confined spaces on board.


SUITS combines the latest in enclosed space drone technology and VR software allowing the operator to deliver a collision tolerant drone through the hatch / confined space entry and then remotely control it via a control console and video screen – the full inspection can be carried out from a safe location.


Inspecting a confined space can present the danger of an oxygen-depleted atmosphere or the ingress of another toxic gas allied to the risks of working at height.


 “A preliminary survey of MAIIF members reveals that there have been at least 101 enclosed space incidents resulting in 93 deaths and 96 injuries, since the Recommendations were adopted in November 1997”
