Tritex NDT Ltd
Tritex NDT Ltd will be launching their new Multigauge 4000 Series ROV Thickness Gauges for mounting onto most work class ROV's. The range includes the Multigauge 4100 and Multigauge 4400, used in depths of 1000m and 4000m respectively. These new products mean that pipelines, pilings and subsea structures can now be easily inspected in shallow and deep water applications without using divers. Also on display will be the renewed Multigauge 3000 Diver Handheld Gauge. Both gauges use Multiple Echo to ensure coatings do not have to be removed, only the metal substrate is measured. Additionally, they have Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR) and Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS).

The Tsurumi Seiki Co Ltd (TSK) announces plans to produce a deep ocean profiling float, the Deep Ninja. A joint research project with the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) was begun in early 2009 with a goal of developing a buoyancy engine capable of operating at high pressure. The success of this research has lead to the decision to proceed toward commercial production of a profiling float based on the deep ocean capabilities of this buoyancy control system. Other components of the new design will make use of work completed for the existing, successful Ninja profiling float.
