2G Robotics and Seatronics Partner Launch New Dynamic Laser Scanning Skid Solution 2G Robotics, a global leader in underwater laser scanners and imaging solutions for the Offshore Energies, Geosciences and Defense industries launched their newest integrated dynamic laser scanning solution at Ocean Business 2019. The new Dynamic Laser Scanning Skid incorporates all sensors required for high precision data collection, reducing the complexity of equipment mobilizations for UAVs and ROVs. The system has already been successfully tested with clients in the gulf of mexico, in collaboration with Seatronics (an Acteon company), and will now be available for rent globally through Seatronics. The Dynamic Laser Scanning Skid includes a number of key features that save time and cost. Navigation and laser scanning come bundled together in a single integrated unit, eliminating complex piecemeal integrations; ROV survey skid payload can easily be
swapped in or out, enabling clients to quickly change missions; small footprint, enabling installation on a variety of vehicles, from mid-class to work-class inspection; and delivered fully integrated, with nothing to configure, patch test, assemble or calibrate. Scott Gray, UK General Manager for Seatronics Ltd said: “We continually strive to offer our clients innovative and efficient subsea technology solutions. The Dynamic Laser Scanning Skid is a key addition to our global rental fleet, providing our clients with high precision data capture and vast scan coverage in a single calibrated package that reduces complexity of equipment mobilisation.”
2G Robotics CEO Jason Gilham said: “Since our inception, 2G Robotics has strived to continuously improve the efficiency of underwater operations through laser and imaging. And this new deployment option, in partnership with Seatronics, allows us to deliver on this promise in ways that are faster and simpler than ever.”
Subsea Innovation Deliver Rapid Response Repair Clamps in Under 10 Weeks Subsea Innovation Ltd, part of Tekmar Group plc, have successfully designed, manufactured, tested and delivered two diver installed 10” pipeline repair clamps, delivered to a major international client in less than 10 weeks. The clamps were designed in accordance with Subsea Innovation’s recently acquired DNV GL Type Approval for temporary and permanent structural repair clamps. Subsea Innovation’s DNV GL Type Approval applies for carbon steel pipelines between 8” and 44” and temperature ranges from -4 to +80oC, providing new capability in the global pipeline market. The clamps were designed and constructed in under 10 weeks during the period of December 2018 to February 2019. At over 3m long and 15Te each, this project was a major undertaking for both Subsea Innovation and the supply chain. Dave Thompson, Managing Director at Subsea Innovation, said: “I am extremely happy with the result as it shows what the team here can do. We worked very closely with the client with who we have a longstanding relationship, to deliver a cost effective and trusted solution to the problem.”

Emergency Pipeline Repair Systems (EPRS) are designed for fast deployment should a subsea oil or gas pipeline become damaged or its integrity found to deficient due to corrosion or defect.
Mr Thompson continued: “Fast
turnarounds are often needed for these type of projects and we at Subsea Innovation are in a strong position to help our clients achieve this.” Subsea Innovation intend to invest further in this product to reduce lead times and increase our responsiveness, supporting their global client base.
