Subsea Construction - 15/10/2005


Century Subsea has taken delivery of a first, with an option for a second, Kongsberg Maritime Subsea HAIN, (Hydroacoustic Aided Inertial Navigation) for a 90-day project in the Gulf of Mexico for a major oil company. Subsea HAIN, developed from the HUGIN AUV navigation system, has now been used in several deepwater projects to enable increased accuracy of underwater positioning with minimal sub-sea hardware, thus significantly reducing sub-sea construction costs. Century Subsea has also purchased a new-generation HiPAP 350P (Portable) USBL System. The HiPAP 350P has the pitch-and-roll sensor mounted in the transducer head, providing the optimal solution for minimising movement in the system. Century Subsea has been using Kongsberg MPT 341 DuB ‘shorties’, with their modular functionality, on a deepwater project in West Africa.
