Inspection of mooring chains is a dangerous and costly procedure covering inspection above and below the waterline. The paper presents initial results from the RIMCAW project which was aimed at designing and building an inspection robot able to climb mooring chains and deploy NDT technologies for scanning individual links thereby to detecting critical defects. The paper focuses on the design and realisation of the inch worm type novel crawler developed and tested in the TWI Middlesbrough water tank.
