Bureau Veritas Announces Partnership Agreement with Infrastructure Preservation Corporation that Introduces Revolutionary Robotics Technology for the Inspection of Aging Infrastructure
NEW YORK, N.Y., (Jan. 13, 2020) –– Bureau Veritas a world-leader in testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) services, announced it has entered into an exclusive partnership agreement in North America with Infrastructure Preservation Corporation (IPC), a complex bridge and infrastructure inspection, non-destructive testing, and robotics engineering company.
Through this partnership, Bureau Veritas will deliver innovative robotics and technology inspection solutions, in the US and Canada, that integrate into the company’s global buildings and infrastructure portfolio.
An industry first, Bureau Veritas inspectors will utilize the power of the robotics technology developed by IPC to determine the condition and deterioration of bridges, roadways and infrastructure, to better protect public safety, reduce costs, better budget for maintenance and repairs, as well as prolong a structure’s life expectancy through early detection and repair.
Delivering the inspection capabilities through the use of robotics allows the inspections to be completed without lane closures, without exposing workers to dangerous conditions, with a much higher efficiency and at a reduced cost.
“Bureau Veritas’ testing and inspection services have been enhanced by the addition of IPC’s innovative robotics technologies by offering a broader, more robust portfolio of solutions that help customers better monitor the progression of deterioration, and proactively address areas of concern,” said Jorge Hercules, Vice President, Transport and Infrastructure- Bureau Veritas North America. “We are excited to push the boundaries of innovation as we deliver the most advanced TIC solutions to our Buildings and Infrastructure clients worldwide.”
“As our business continues to grow, this exclusive partnership gives IPC the opportunity to disrupt manual & subjective inspection methods currently in use globally with quantitative data that can help asset owners worldwide better allocate budgets to manage maintenance and repairs.
Utilizing robotic technology is safer for both inspectors and the traveling public and has a lower cost for the asset owners and taxpayers alike,” said Doug Thaler, Pressident, IPC. “We look forward to working with Bureau Veritas and their clients as we combine their 200-year legacy, expertise, and global reach with our robotics technology, to revolutionize testing and inspection services in the buildings and infrastructure industry.”
