development capabilities to become the
leading global Life of Field service provider.
To achieve this goal, we are collaborating
with some of the biggest, most innovative
companies and well-known brands in the
world, developing a peer network with
other industries, academia and using open
innovation platforms to identify trends
or solutions used in other industries that
would be transferable and applicable.
What developments can you expect to see
from us in the near future?
Pipeline and riser repairs
Following on from the success of our
Emergency Pipeline Repair System (EPRS)
Project offshore Australia, the development
of faster deployable pipeline repair
solutions including ROV deployable epoxy
wraps and an epoxy-based repair clamp
to allow deepwater repairs with scalable
delivery and a fast, flexible response.
Autonomous, remote and
hosted technology
The development and testing of the
original AIV gave us a solid platform
for development of the sophisticated
autonomous vehicle. We have successfully
deployed autonomous surface vehicles to
perform metrology and other survey-related
tasks. Sophisticated autonomous vehicles
based on our existing AIV will deliver a
significant value proposition to our clients.
This is only the beginning of an exciting
phase where we are developing remote
piloting systems, beyond restricted 4G
network capabilities, and pilot assistance
solutions. These include machine intelligence
and autonomous capabilities to perform
tasks that can greatly assist operations,
reducing user fatigue or human error and
similar in concept to aviation autopilots or
airport visual recognition systems.
Advanced identification sensors
We are currently evaluating and working
with technology providers in developing
new solutions to enable early hydrate,
corrosion and cathodic protection and
identification through non-intrusive and
non-contact methods.
Rapid fly-by external inspection using a
non-contact sensor for ROV, AUV or AIV
deployment to identify wall thickness,
hydrate and wax anomalies or the status
of CP systems is critical in enabling time-
efficient inspections and determining the
health of structural assets.
Evolving technologies allow us to deploy
chemical injection solutions or localised
remediation solutions earlier and more
Integrated data management
Using automated anomaly identification
and data processing systems, our data
management program, will be able to
process and prioritise data to provide high-
quality, timely reporting in line with all the
client’s requirements and systems.
We have developed a unique data
architecture with Application Programming
Interfaces (APIs) that allow us to maximise
automation, integrate all types of sensors
and software platforms and introduce
unique i-Tech services apps to optimise
the acquisition, management and, most
critically, access to intuitive smart data.
The benefits include enhanced quality
control, faster report delivery, improved
data security and reduced resource
requirements. Fundamentally, it will allow
our clients to concentrate on their critical,
high-value datasets to deliver insight and
