Seatronics, an Acteon company, has increased its investment in Teledyne Marine pipe tracking technology with the purchase of a HydroPACT 660 system to add to Seatronics’ extensive global rental fleet.
The HydroPACT 660 smaller and lighter coil array has been designed to help reduce the operating cost of subsea pipe surveys by allowing the use of smaller classes of underwater remotely operated vehicles, Seatronics explains.
Derek Donaldson, VP global operations, Seatronics, said: “The investment in the new HydroPACT 660 system was a clear choice for Seatronics. Our customers have trust in the Teledyne Marine products and we have seen significant interest in their range of pipe tracking solutions. The purchase is yet another example of Seatronics’ continued dedication to providing our global customers with innovative subsea technologies from industry leading manufacturers.”
William Egan, VP sales & marketing, instruments & imaging at Teledyne Marin, said: “This order reflects the demand for adaption of new technology within the proven, easy to operate, accurate and comprehensive range of pipe and cable detection equipment. The HydroPACT 660 has been designed to help reduce the cost of subsea pipe surveys by allowing the use of smaller classes of ROVs.”
