In summer 2013, Fendercare Marine was contracted to assist in the inspection of the subsea structure of Kinsale A platform, one of Ireland's longest established gas production platforms.


The team carried out a wide range of examinations to ensure the safety of its structure, ranging from general visual inspection of the platform through to close visual inspection of individual welds and removal of extensive marine growth.
