Deepwater Waterjet Cutting, Blasting System for Work Class ROVs

Chukar Waterjet, USA, introduces its SUB-JET 3000 subsea waterjet system for work class ROVs. Operable at depths up to 3,000m (10,000 feet), the SUB-JET 3000 cuts steel up to 250mm thick and blasts away coatings, corrosion and marine growth at pressures up to 3,900 bar. Because it is deployed with an ROV, the SUB-JET 3000 is less expensive than a standalone subsea waterjet system. The requirements for an independent launch and recovery system (LARS), umbilical, and subsea hydraulic power unit (HPU) are eliminated, resulting in a system acquisition cost of about 20 to 30 percent of a standalone system.

S-Boom Technology for Fugro

Fugro Survey (Middle East) Ltd has ordered Applied Acoustics' S-Boom sub-bottom profiling system for its geophysical survey operations based out of Abu Dhabi (UAE). Developed for shallow-water, ultra-high resolution surveys, the S-Boom system had been undergoing extensive trials with Fugro during the late summer of 2011 before being accepted and selected at the end of that year.     S-Boom sub bottom profiling systems combine the power of three modified boomer plates to provide a single pulse, driven by a single source power supply. The fusion of these three transducers delivers a source level high enough to significantly increase sub-bottom... (read more)
