Geo Oceans completed a full in-water vessel (Lloyds Register) class diverless survey of an active FPSO facility, using only mini- ROVs.
The entire survey was completed by a three-man ROV team working from one control room on the FPSO. The survey was completed at a fraction of the cost and risk of traditional diver surveys and caused no delays, no isolations and had minimal impact on the facility operations.
The ROV surveyed nine mooring legs (to 100 m water depth), 100% of the vessel hull, 38 penetrations, two active caissons and a 500 m2 section of hull that had not been inspected during two previous UWILD diving campaigns (over 10 years) because the area was too dangerous for divers to access.
