[progress percentage=”100″ filledcolor=”” unfilledcolor=””]Pros and Cons of Sub-Contracting vs In-House[/progress]

Inhouse Thermographics


  • Flexibility – Local cameras and operators can be used at short notice
  • Visas – National workers will not suffer a restriction on visas


  • High roll-out cost in terms provision of cameras and trained operators for each vessel
  • Training will vary with regions
  • Reporting templates and layouts will vary with regions
  • Potential loss of trained personnel meaning new replacement personnel will have to be trained.
  • Potential time delays in implementing the above
  • Camera hardware and reporting software is not the highest quality
  • Without strict campaign management thermographic procedures and reporting will vary between vessels/assets
  • Unlikely to have full inventory list trending and image record for all equipment
  • Loss of historical reports and data
  • Loss of equipment, equipment peripherals and software
  • Computer software install
  • Rarely used equipment and software will result in low grade thermography and reporting standards
