Mining & Tunneling

Hibbard Inshore is committed to serving the mining industry through providing robotic solutions in areas where flooding has occurred or where it is unsafe for human operators to go. Hibbard Inshore can inspect flooded tunnels to 20+ kilometers from a single access point and dry tunnels to 4 kilometers from one access. Hibbard Inshore can assist these situations through their expertise in mapping underwater structures, developing debris removal and repair strategies, carrying out tunnel plugging techniques and performing underwater recovery of certain assets. The underwater and tracked vehicles can be used to assess flooded or dry hazardous mines or tunnels by using appropriate sensors including imaging sonar, video, lasers, gas detection equipment and 3-Dimensional mapping systems.
