Clinton Marine Undertakes Beatrice UXO Survey

Clinton Marine Survey AB has started unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey along the Beatrice offshore wind farm export cable routes in the Moray Firth on behalf of Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Limited (BOWL).

The survey, planned to last for minimum of four weeks, is being undertaken by the M/V Northern Wind vessel.

Due to water depth restrictions, Ocean Server Iver 3 AUV and the CRC Atlas RIB are conducting the survey in the shallow waters area.

The UXO survey involves the coverage of dedicated survey lines by the vessel with a towed gradiometer array.

The vessel is towing a sled with two Geometrics G-882 gradiometers, as well as deploying a small Video Ray ROV for target visual inspection.

The 588MW wind farm that features 84 wind turbines is expected to power approximately 450,000 homes.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
