Lloyd’s Register (LR) has brought together a global team to support the use of remote surveys within the marine and offshore industries.
The team, comprising dozens of dedicated subject matter experts, is located in key marine and offshore hubs around the world and will be responsible for delivering complex remote surveying capability.
“At LR, Remote is about making our people, our expertise and our solutions available remotely as well as physically,” explained James Forsdyke, marine & offshore head of product management. “Technology is an enabler, but the value continues to be our human expertise and experience,” he added.
LR provides an adaptable process tailored to the specific requirements of its partners and can also provide the ‘LR Remote App’ for clients who do not have a preferred technology. The app enables survey requests to be coordinated and channelled to LR’s global surveyor network, allowing crew members to livestream with an LR technical specialist and other relevant parties.
In response to an increase in demand for remote surveys and the necessity of keeping supply chains operating, LR is collaborating with flag states, regulators and other industry partners to bring consistent remote working practices to the marine and offshore industries.
