Inuktun Sighting #49: Subsea 7 and PSO take the Long View

SPOTTED: The Versatrax 150™ inline crawler inspecting 1500 metre pipeline sections for a total distance of 3600 metres of 12 inch diameter pipe. The remote visual inspection, performed by PSO, was requested by Subsea 7 to document the condition of welds in the pipeline located at the North Sea Spoolbase in Vigra, Norway. According to PSO’s Product Manager Inspection & Subsea, Bård Arve Valstad, mobilization was less than one day and the client was very impressed that the job went according to a competitive time and cost schedule.

And, in its parallel configuration, the crawler is steerable and can be used in pipes that are 12 inches in diameter or larger. The basic crawler provides high quality live video from the on-board Spectrum 90™ PTZ camera but systems can be purchased with the Spectrum 120HD™ PTZ for exceptional High Definition images.
