Teledyne Gavia AUV Gets Marine Magnetic Explorer Magnetometer

Teledyne Gavia, manufacturer of the Gavia autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), said it has integrated Marine Magnetics’ Explorer AUV magnetometer.

The Explorer AUV magnetometer is an omnidirectional sensor, which is towed behind the vehicle allowing it to operate outside the AUV’s magnetic signature.

According to Teledyne, dynamic and static testing of the Gavia AUV was conducted at Marine Magnetics’ facility in Canada and near Teledyne Gavia’s manufacturing facility in Kopavogur, Iceland to validate that the Explorer could measure variations in the magnetic field, rather than the influence of the Gavia moving through the water column.

Equipping the Gavia AUV with the Marine Magnetics Explorer enables it to combine high accuracy magnetic signature mapping along with Side Scan or Bathymetric survey data, Sub Bottom Profiler data, and still images, providing multiple detection levels of unexploded ordnance (UXO), pipelines, buried objects, or shipwrecks, the company explains.

“The Gavia AUV’s growing list of available sensors offers our clients an extremely flexible solution for a variety of commercial, military, and scientific applications. The integration of this small, yet sensitive, magnetometer allows users to have a low-logistics AUV with expanded capabilities for UXO mission capabilities in particular,” said Stefan Reynisson, general manager of Teledyne Gavia.

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
