Increased demand prompts investment in Ashtead’s CCTV fleet

Increased demand prompts investment in Ashtead’s CCTV fleet
11/07/2019

In order to cope with growing demand, Ashtead Technology has invested more than £200k in its CCTV pipe inspection rental fleet over the last 6 months. “We are continuously buying new technology,” reports Regional Sales Manager Jay Neermul, “but with more long-term national contracts in place, we have had to increase the number of cameras in stock, so that customers can choose the best and most appropriate equipment, wherever and whenever they need it.”

Recent examples of Ashtead Technology’s acquisitions include the iPEK Rovion ATEX crawler cameras and a range of MiniCam systems such as the iCam SOLOPro+ push-rod cameras with axial, pan & tilt and duo options, as well as the Proteus crawler cameras.

Eliminating the need for man-entry, a new floatation raft with EX Zone 2 certification has also been added to the fleet for applications with flowing water. With three powerful, angled, auxiliary LED light modules, the raft can be lowered in most manholes for the inspection of pipes from 60cm to over 200cm diameter.

A new portable trolley is also now available to store and transport all of the necessary equipment for pipe inspections. The trolley has been designed for Proteus inspection systems, and is particularly advantageous in applications with difficult access where inspections are undertaken at some distance from a vehicle. Jay says: “The raft and trolley were purchased in response to specific customer requests, and are good examples of the way in which we respond to customer needs by investing in the fleet and expanding equipment options for all of our customers.”

Commenting on the growth in long-term rental contracts, Jay says: “Many larger organisations have re-evaluated their instrumentation fleets and decided that rental represents a more attractive option – avoiding heavy capital investments and depreciation costs, whilst retaining access to the latest technologies.”
