Ashtead Technology Wraps Subsea Installation

Uk-based mostly subsea devices rental and solutions firm Ashtead Engineering claimed Monday it experienced not long ago finished its 1st sizeable subsea monitoring job using Hydromea’s LUMA superior-velocity by way of-drinking water wireless optical modems considering the fact that signing the worldwide rental partnership.

The rental partnership arrangement was signed in June final year with Switzerland-centered Hydromea, a subsea wi-fi entry company, for the use of Hydromea’s LUMA higher-pace by-water wireless optical modems as an integral element of its AMS+ and DMS (Autonomous & Deflection Checking Units) for the global subsea building marketplace.

Describing its to start with significant project using the LUMA modems, Ashtead Technology claimed Monday: “The project saw Ashtead Know-how supply its Autonomous Construction Checking Units, which were being each individual integrated with LUMA optical modems, to finish an underwater set up monitoring do the job scope for subsea and offshore wind contractor, Havfram, in the Norwegian North Sea.”



The work scope included the provision of ten Autonomous Composition Checking Methods, two for just about every suction anchor template, and an more four Autonomous Composition Checking Systems, which had been utilized to keep an eye on the set up of a variety of subsea structures. The Composition Checking Units have been configured for autonomous unbiased procedure, communicating info to one of the set up ROVs. Ashtead Technologies used LUMA optical modems to improve the accuracy of the facts collected, making sure highest overall performance of the method.

“LUMA solutions are the smallest, lightest, lowest electricity consuming subsea optical modems readily available that give higher-speed and large-bandwidth wi-fi interaction at depths of up to 6,000 meters with remarkably very low latency, even in the murky waters of the North Sea,” the corporation claimed.

Ross MacLeod, Ashtead Technology’s Complex Director, added: “When finishing subsea set up tasks, it is vital that the details supplied is exact, reliable and sent in real-time. This cuts down the hazard of destruction to the composition all through set up and guarantees it is put in within just specification.

“We have been utilizing LUMA modems on construction initiatives more than the earlier 3 decades and we have been very pleased with the functionality and simplicity of integration of the products into our current methods. The technologies utilised inside of the LUMA modems is slicing edge and improvements subsea data communication noticeably even though supporting to reduce job complexity, threat and cost.”
