DNV GL drone inspection on the Rowan Gorilla VI

February 28, 2018
DNV GL surveyors recently used drones to inspect the Rowan Gorilla VI, a Super Gorilla Class Jack-up owned by Rowan Companies. Over four days in Aberdeen, with a local surveyor in attendance, the two-man drone team examined the external and internal leg structure of the rig, the jacking house, helideck support, and undertook a bottom survey. Rowan Gorilla VI has a leg length of 607ft (185 m), can work in a maximum water depth of 400ft (121 m) and has a maximum drilling depth of 35,000ft (10,668 m).
