Through an MSA agreement with a global subsea engineering and construction client, Seatronics were asked to support on a subsea installation project. The client required a trusted solution to accurately measure the pitch and roll of a pipeline during installation.
Seatronics developed a bespoke solution which consisted of a suitable frame and bracket to attach to the pipe with ROV handles to support an iXblue Octans gyrocompass and motion sensor to determine the pitch and roll throughout installation. The solution also included direct power and communications tether from the ROV.
Benefits and results
The client received a trusted and effective solution which accurately provided the data to successfully complete the pipeline project ensuring operational time and cost efficiencies.
Whilst simple this solution delivered real and immediate time savings when subsea. Impressed with the functionality of the solution the client purchased the fabricated bracket to continue use in the field on future projects
