In the water and sewer industry, the aim at Hibbard Inshore is to give our customers solutions where the local sewer camera companies face constraints. The wide ranging capabilities of the vehicles in our fleet of ROVs allows Hibbard Inshore to travel long distances and carry a wide variety of sensing packages and tooling to complete projects and get our customers the information they need to accurately assess their assets. In this industry, we commonly see pipes that are inspected in the dewatered, partially full, and full states. Because of this, we have a wide range of crawling, streaming and swimming vehicles allowing us to choose the platform best suited to your project. As with all the industries we serve, a variety of construction services can be performed, and those are listed in our Construction section.
Hibbard Inshore is capable of performing a wide variety of work in potable water systems. Our team follows all applicable drinking water standards to sterilize our equipment and has performed work in long conveyance tunnels, intakes, reservoirs, wet wells, aqueducts, mains, and tanks. As a standard, we equip our vehicles with high resolution video, profiling and sector scan sonar, and laser scaling. These technologies allow us to do feature detection and determine the severity of any issue at hand in a quick and efficient manner. Other technologies that are commonly used with our vehicles are ultrasonic thickness gauging and electromagnetic acoustic transducers (EMAT) which are further described in the Technology section of our website.
Inspection of both pre and post treatment sewer lines are a common part of our business at Hibbard Inshore. Our equipment allows us to do an initial inspection of your lines without cleaning or dewatering. If your line is dewatered, partially full, or full, we have a vehicle that will be suited to complete the inspection. We typically run our crawling vehicles, streaming vehicles, and swimming vehicles in the different circumstances you find in the sewer industry, and because of this range, we are capable of looking at interceptors, force mains, combined sewer piping, inverted siphons, tanks, and long tunnels.
Our vehicles commonly carry video and sonar, and in partially full, concrete pipes, ground penetrating radar (GPR). These technologies allow us to internally assess your structures, and in the case of GPR, we can look at the condition of the pipe beyond the surface to detect condition of rebar and possible voids. H2S sensing equipment and laser scanning equipment are other sensor packages commonly used on our vehicles and are described in the Technology section of our website.
