Forum Energy Technologies has won a new contract which includes provision of its pipeline and cable survey software to the newbuild cable laying support vessel, the NKT Victoria.
Two VisualSoft Four Channel High Definition Digital Video Systems (VisualDVR MCHD) will be supplied to iSURVEY. The first vessel installation for the newest system in the VisualSoft range, is to be utilised on the NKT Victoria in the Moray Firth on the Caithness Moray HVDC project.
Andy McAra, VisualSoft’s product director, said: “We are very excited to release our new multi-channel high definition video solution to the market and it is great to be supplying the first of these systems to iSURVEY.”
“It also makes us very proud to see our systems being installed on this new state of the art cable lay ship not least because her first contract will be here in Scotland.”
Kenneth Leverskjær, iSURVEY’s project manager, said: “We have great expectations to the VisualSoft system, and are looking forward to further develop the strategic relationship with FORUM Energy Technologies as provider.”
The VisualSoft suite is a modular range of software applications designed specifically for use during subsea structure and pipeline inspections.
Also within the scope of supply is VisualArchive, an application which is used to collect logged files from the video systems and copies them to pre-configured file locations on a variety of storage and backup devices such as large network storage drives which also form part of this scope.
VisualEdit Eventing will be used to provide an offline event and anomaly logging, editing and reporting capability for the project.
