Applus+ RVIS, provides remote visual inspections and non-destructive testing as a safe, flexible, and cost-effective alternative to conventional inspection methods, in all types of industries. Our mission is to revolutionize the way we do a visual inspection by using automation to make operations faster, safer, and more cost-effective. Our tailored remote inspections solutions increase the effectiveness of your integrity program while minimizing risk to health & safety and maximizing resource utilization. We are inventors of the CU24, an award-winning inspection tool. A telescopic crane mounted with an HD camera, it is currently the quickest and safest tool for pipe racks inspection. Our highly skilled technical team uses the latest technology in drones and drone cameras and adapts inspection robots to our clients’ visual inspection needs.

Applus+ RVIS combines smart and fast remote solutions with extensive Applus+ visual inspection expertise. It enables comprehensive thermal and visual inspections for quality assurance and asset integrity management with the smartest and safest tools developed and tested in our laboratories.
Our highly qualified teams first assess customer needs and tailor inspection programs according to structures of their assets. They identify where remote tools can be deployed along with other main Applus+ inspection services for optimal inspection results. Clients get comprehensive data reports with geo tagged visual data that can be stored on clients’ ERP. Repeated inspections allow better insights into material damage and degeneration patterns and enable preventive measures to manage assets’ integrity.
With Applus+ global presence, we offer our customers faster response times, reduced costs, and the convenience of a base close to their location.
