DOF Subsea Norway AS completed its first survey with the newly purchased Focus 2 ROTV system. The pipeline survey covered more than 1,000 km and 60 pipelines in the Danish sector of the North Sea. The project, originally anticipated to take about a month's time, was executed ahead of schedule utilising DOF Subsea's vessel, Geosund.
DOF Subsea Norway's new Focus 2 ROTV was outfitted with a HAIN inertial system, DVL, CTD sensor and Edgetech 300/600 kHz SSS to complete nearly three-fourths of the survey. The remaining area, in close proximity to subsea structures, was surveyed using a Schilling UHD WROV.
Duncan MacPherson, DOF Subsea Norway's Regional Manager for Atlantic & Europe, comments: "This was a great opportunity for DOF Subsea Norway to demonstrate our ability to deliver subsea projects to a key client in our region. We believe this project helped to strengthen our relationship and further develop our track record in the region."
The new Focus 2 ROTV proved to be highly successful during the operation. Its HAIN inertial system was interfaced to the auto functions of the ROTV, which ensured smooth and reliable control of the vehicle. DOF Subsea Norway is offering the ROTV for rental to the market along with a minimum of 2 operators to follow the system.
