UTEC Survey, an Acteon company, has completed an ROV navigation and seismic node positioning project in deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
The project, carried out for FairfieldNodal and undertaken in 2425 meters of water, involved use of the latest software and navigation technologies.
UTEC conducted the project using a combination of acoustics and inertial positioning technology. A key element was the creation of an improved navigation software package incorporating the NavView technology from data and positioning analysis expert 4D Nav, the company explained.
UTEC regional manager (Americas) Dave Ross said: “The successful completion of this project underlines the value in applying innovative solutions to increase operational efficiency and address costs, which is critical in the modern industry.
“Our excellent relationship with 4DNav meant that we were able to provide a bespoke solution to FairfieldNodal, which exceeded expectations, eliminated the need for multiple computers, streamlined activities and created a much more efficient operation. We are delighted at the successful outcome achieved by this exciting solution.”
