Aries can now carry out both Aerial surveys using Drones and Underwater surveys using ROVs as well as by conventional diving.

On the occasion of this Launch, Aries Marine Managing Director (Projects) Mr. Ajith PJ conveyed: “Since inception of Aries in 1998, Our CEO Dr. Sohan Roy has always had the vision of developing Aries to a one-stop solution for any asset integrity management and engineering solutions. This era of technological advancements and the recent pandemic related restrictions have made us think differently to offer remote solutions to the maritime industry,  helping our clients to survey their assets remotely from their work stations. To keep abreast of the latest technology, our R&D division is currently working on intelligent data capturing and analytics as well. Our aim is to have comprehensive Visual Asset Management Platform with the support of various advanced engineering using remote surveys by drones, ROVs and advanced 3D imaging techniques“

With Live data captured as images and videos, the reporting capabilities via remote access provided by the Aries Underwater Solutions will assist maritime asset owners to save time & money. It benefits clients and surveyors to make efficient decisions during the execution of classification and statutory surveys for both ships and offshore units.

“Aries has developed the capability of underwater surveys by acquiring an existing and operational diving firm based out of Fujairah. It has helped us to establish the facilities quickly with all the procedures and protocols already in place. This facility being strategically located in United Arab Emirates is capable of conducting commercial diving operations at offshore fields and in the various ports and anchorages of the UAE and on-board ships. With our vision for 2025, our current plan is to follow similar acquisitions and have strategic partners globally in areas which complements our core 78+ services to serve our 5200+ loyal clients” stated Mr. Ajai Mathew, Project Lead –Technology & Strategy of Aries Marine.
