Rovco and PanGeo team up for 3D O&M and survey solutions

UK companies Rovco and PanGeo Subsea have joined forces to offer innovative 3D operations & maintenance and survey solutions.

According to Rovco, the partnership is designed to combine the companies’ areas of expertise to capture and provide early insight into changing subsea components and environmental conditions that may lead to wider problems or failures without planned intervention.

The combination fuses Rovco’s offshore O&M and hydrographic survey expertise, the SubSLAM X2 intelligent data collection system, and PanGeo’s 3D sub-bottom imager technology to deliver full 3D images of subsea assets both above and below the seabed.

By combining the PanGeo SBI, SubSLAM and a host of ROV deployed tools, owners and operators are offered a single-sourced solution to inform the condition of their jackets, monopiles and interconnecting cables plus protection systems, in a solution that can be deployed whilst the assets are still operating and energized, HVAC or HVDC, Rovco added.

“Technology solutions are what is enabling the sector to move forward at pace. De-risking and future-proofing offshore operations and investments with verifiable data,” said Simon Miller, Rovco managing director.

“The scope of what the Rovco-PanGeo collaboration can offer is impressive, ranging from as-built verification, to cable depth-of-burial, archaeological investigations, UXO analysis, structural asset inspections and much more.”

The collaboration is said to be born in response to the offshore energy market’s growing need for a prompt and detailed understanding of the performance of subsea infrastructure such as anodes, CPS, scour, cable burial, and the effect of marine growth during the O&M lifecycle.
