Rovco Gets Innovate UK Boost for 3D Visualisation Project

Rovco, a subsea technology company, has secured Innovate UK funding to develop a 3D visualisation system as a part of a two-part Artificial Intelligence demonstrator project potentially worth £1 million.

Working in partnership with the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, the first phase of the project will see Rovco develop the equipment and software required to produce live 3D data from subsea environments.

The technology will be trialed and tested at ORE Catapult’s renewable energy test facility in Blyth.

Phase two will include the development of a complete 3D vision-based survey solution using Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The first phase of the project will be 70% supported by Innovate UK, and the remaining 30% will be funded by Rovco.

The planned phase two is expected to be further backed by Innovate UK once technical feasibility is proven. This will see Rovco partner with an autonomous vehicle manufacturer and other subsea companies.

Rovco chief executive and founder, Brian Allen, said: “We aim to deliver a step change in how offshore surveys are performed by generating live 3D data from survey-class ROVs to increase efficiencies, reduce costs and minimize risks.

This latest project follows Rovco’s previous Innovate UK funded study which demonstrated the market need and overall feasibility for 3D models of subsea assets.

The Offshore Well Intervention Gulf of Mexico conference (OWI GOM) is returning to Houston, Texas for its sixth year on Wednesday 20 – Thursday 21 November.

Featuring Anadarko, BP, Shell, Chevron, BHGE and Oceaneering, the conference aims to help operators transition to the latest compliance updates, WI systems and business models that enhance safety, quicken well access and improve commerciality.

Across two days, more than 200 delegates, 15 exhibitors and 30 speakers will network together and create solutions to some of the most pertinent industry challenges right now, through a conference programme focused on:

  1. Clarifying compliance updates
  2. Quicker well access and safer well control
  3. ​Understanding HPHT well intervention (systems)
  4. Forecasting well intervention activity, discussing new commercial models and comparing platform options
  5. Best practice riserless well intervention
  6. ​The latest well intervention equipment
