Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs) are an essential navigational aid used in subsea operations where GPS is unavailable.
A new project funded by Innovate UK will see Aberdeen technology developer HonuWorx and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult partner to develop an exciting new submersible mothership designed to make robotics a sustainable and cost-effective solution for offshore wind farms.
Lithium-ion batteries are used for a wide range of activities and applications in the oceans such as to power vehicles, sensors, and energy storage systems, as well as to electrify oil and gas production.
There is a growing market demand for an enabling technology which is the nerve center of a reliable and resilient electrical grid: intelligent battery storage. Responsible for augmenting output from resources such as wind and solar, helping to reduce the environmental impact of power generation and improving grid efficiency, battery storage is experiencing rapid growth on a worldwide scale.
Maintaining flow assurance is a critical part of operations planning for oil and gas pipelines. The daily cost of unplanned maintenance and shutdowns can quickly accumulate. Any number of things can set back successful operations, including damage to the pipeline from corrosion, pitting, and cracking, as well as buildup from hydrates and heavy wax.
