OceanTools Launches New Subsea Scanning Tool

Aberdeen-based engineering firm OceanTools has released C-Scan, its new laser based optical 3D scanning system.

Encased within subsea housings providing an operational depth rated at 3000m, the C-Scan system comprises a 360O rotary encoder plus a laser triangulation system capable of taking measurements fifteen times per second and generating 700 discrete data points per scan.

Already field tested, the company said that C-Scan aims to become the market leading offshore and subsea laser inspection tool providing precise and rapid three dimensional identification of integrity issues such as critical structural defects, anode depletion, corrosion defects and surface weld defects on any number of offshore assets, plus internal inspections of vital components such as caissons, pipes and piles.
