When BroadSea ROV Ltd. of Fraserburgh, Scotland, was recently asked by a major operator in the North Sea to look at the problem of marine growth on the hull of an FPSO (floating production storage and offloading), they immediately looked at the range of magnetic crawler vehicles available from Inuktun.
