Forum Sets Up Deep-Water Test Tank at Aberdeen Base

Forum Energy Technologies UK has unveiled a deep-water test facility and received industry accreditation for the calibration laboratory at its new European Operational Centre in Aberdeen.

The indoor test tank is one of the largest in the North-east of Scotland and is dedicated to testing subsea tooling and survey sensors as well as work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

The test tank and laboratory have a primary purpose to provide full control, certification and faster turnaround in preparing Forum’s rental inventory for hire. In addition, the firm will also offer a full test and calibration service to customers.

The fresh water tank, measuring 5 metres x 6m x 4.5m, is fitted with overhead 10T crane, lighting, cameras and a viewing platform.

The calibration laboratory has been accredited by Valeport and conforms to traceable procedures for the recalibration of Valeport CTDs (conductivity, temperature and density) and sound velocity sensors and parameters fitted on current meters, tide gauges, wave recorders and loggers.

In addition, seven of Forum Subsea Rentals’ (FSR) engineers have undergone extensive training at Valeport on all aspects of the calibration of CTD and Sound Velocity parameters.
