Post-Storm Detailed Survey Completed16/07/2009
|Fugro Chance recently completed work in the Gulf of Mexico on a damaged platform, detailed survey. The Marine Construction Survey Division of Fugro Chance was responsible for the precise mapping of a platform jacket in approximately 380' of water. The platform's deck had been damaged during a storm, with the platform jacket being inclined in excess of ten degrees from its vertical position.|
Precise mapping of the platform jacket from sea level to seabed, and detailed mapping of the debris field on the seabed was derived using a Multibeam Echosounder (MBE) system. This was accomplished in conjunction with Fugro's proprietary Fine Track L200 Integrated Navigation System (INS). Fugro pioneered the development of INS solutions to address subsea positioning in today's highly demanding and oil and gas projects. Post processing of the MBE data was performed using Fugro's proprietary suite of Starfix processing applications.
Imminent rig arrival on location and an unfavorable weather forecast dictated that Fugro Chance mobilize personnel and the equipment spread to the dock within 24 hours of notification. The vessel departed dock after a mobilization period of only 18 hours.

Demo of RIEGL Airborne Bathy Scanner in Camcopter UAV
It's not an AUV but an UAV. So an unmanned vehicle, but in the air instead of underwater. This movie shows a demonstration of the bathymetric laser scanning capabilities of the RIEGL VQ-820-GU hydrographic airborne sensor in reality. For more information on the technical side, please see the news release on Hydro International.
