Bowtech Products Ltd supplied miniature underwater cameras with integral LEDs to Isotek Oil And Gas Ltd for observation of a diverless subsea pipeline repair system.
The L3C-400-MICRO cameras were fitted with pressure relief valves to enable safe operation in an Argon-rich atmosphere subsea. The cameras were also supplied with right angled adaptors to permit observation of the tool in operation from all angles from restricted available camera positions.
The Diverless Subsea Pipeline Repair System was developed by Isotek Oil And Gas Ltd for their multinational Oil and Gas client. The Bowtech L3C-400-MICRO was chosen due to its extremely compact size for use in the limited space available within the tool. Bowtech modified the standard camera to incorporate the pressure relief valves.
Tom Bishop, Mechanical Design Engineer at Isotek Oil And Gas Ltd commented: “Bowtech understood our need for a bespoke miniature camera with pressure relief and were helpful and professional throughout the process. The product was delivered on time, has performed well and proved to be reliable in use. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Bowtech again.”
