Inspectahire Instrument Company Ltd.

Remote visual inspection specialists

Inspectahire is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of specialist remote visual inspection technology and solutions to companies around the world.

Established in 198, we are based in Aberdeen, Scotland and offer equipment rental, contracting and project engineering services. Our experience is not limited to one industry, We have successfully delivered a wide range of advanced inspection solutions to the oil & gas, Subsea, energy, petroleum retail, pharmaceuticals, physical assets, and process industries.

As one of the UK’s leading inspection specialists, Inspectahire has worked on a diverse range of projects across the world. From the legs of oil & gas platforms to the tips of wind turbines, via railway infrastructure and factory machinery, we have been called upon to undertake all types of inspections, in all environments – including harsh and hazardous areas.
We were established in 1981 out of innovation, and innovation remains at the heart of our business today. Technologies change and as they do, so does the way in which we inspect things.

Each inspection requires a degree of engineering and has to be undertaken in the safest and quickest possible way in order to minimise disruption and reduce costs. Sometimes an inspection poses us problem. But, using our in-house design capability we can custom design a system that overcomes the problem.

  • We created the means to internally inspect the world's largest Butadiene tanks without taking them out of service.

  • We engineered the removal and replacement of the base heating system of the world's largest singe skinned LPG tank - while its remained in use.

  • We created a telescopic mast which we could erect from the track bed of a rail tunnel through a 400m hole in the crown and elevate a camera 40m vertically to inspect the 4m diameter shaft - all in a weekend.

Our extensive experience of inspecting things large and small in any environment ensures that we can offer innovative solutions to inspection problems, as can be seen from our case studies (available on our website).Inspectahire is committed to being progressive in the application of new technology and developing innovative processes. As a result  we regularly invested significantly in the latest technology. This way, the company can ensure their knowledgeable in-house technical team  can provide an integrated inspection service.
