Three ways to remotely support offshore integrity management projects
These systems are accessible by clients and engineers alike from their home-offices to allow for the continued insight of offshore asset structural integrity.
Pulse’s subsea infrastructure structural monitoring solutions use reliable subsea instrumentation from their Integri range to measure acceleration, vibration, angular rate, depth and dynamic curvature of pipeline spans and other assets.
Combined with ADCP (acoustic doppler current profiler) current meters, monitoring systems can help predict a potential failure resulting from fatigue.
The collection of in situ, empirical data leads to an advanced understanding of pipeline condition which helps improve decision making when it comes to scheduling inspection and maintenance strategies. Demonstrating a continuous understanding of asset behaviour helps ensure regulatory compliance and provides evidence-based knowledge to support field life extension.
The UTEC platform is fully web-hosted and has a google-street-view type photogrammetry view of onshore and offshore facilities coupled with laser point-cloud data allowing the engineer at home or remote location to plan offshore works, undergo site familiarisation, inspection, maintenance identification all without having to go offshore.
Based on UTEC’s experience and thorough understanding of how materials and parts interact, services provide submillimetre accuracies for:
- Spool verification
- Vessel calibration
- Structural dimensional control verification
- Alignment and deformation analysis
- Clash analysis.
UTEC undertake state-of-the-art laser scanning, including the ability to gather subsea point cloud data from high-frequency sonars and laser systems for spool piece metrology and inspection projects.
