WFS Named in MTR 100 Leading Companies in Global Subsea Sector
WFS Technologies, global leader in the delivery of underwater wireless instrumentation and control solutions to the Oil and Gas and Renewables industries, has been named to the 2013 Marine Technology Reporter 100 leading companies in the global subsea sector.
Marine Technology Reporter is the world’s largest audited circulation magazine to cover the marine technology market. The MTR 100 is highly regarded and acts as a resource guide for companies, government agencies, research institutions and universities seeking marine technology products and services. The MTR edition profiles the leading 100 marine technology companies in the worldwide underwater technology and ocean science industry.
The company’s flagship platform, Seatooth® based on radio frequency (RF), ensures WFS’ 2013 entry into the top 100 marine technology products. The products in the Seatooth® family have revolutionised control, communications and power transfer in underwater environments by successfully addressing a broad range of short/medium range applications, supporting safety, reliability and efficiency offshore. The advantages that subsea RF can offer are high data rates and reliable operations in adverse water conditions.
The product family is now expanded to include wireless dataloggers, wireless power transfer, wireless video cameras and the newly launched integrated subsea wireless solutions alongside the original Seatooth® wireless modems. The Integrated Subsea Wireless Solutions or ISWS are preconfigured wireless instruments with ROV data collection to streamline and simplify deployment of subsea wireless tools, helping reach productivity more quickly. Visitors to the WFS stand at Offshore Europe (6A41 in the Deep Water Zone) can visit the stand for more information on WiPS: the integrated wireless pressure sensor and datalogger with LED display for reducing the cost of pipeline commissioning and monitoring.
Seatooth® has been deployed in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico and SE Asia for supporting and de-risking ROV operations, fast reliable download of data from subsea sensors with a wireless-enabled ROV, wireless backup of equipment controls providing an extra level of redundancy and avoiding downtime associated with wet mate connectors when powering and recharging of subsea equipment/sensors.
“We’re very honoured that Marine Technology Reporter has again selected WFS as one of the global top 100 marine technology companies.” says Amanda Collins, Marketing Manager at WFS. “We are very excited to see the continued growth of both the Seatooth® product family and the emerging applications for subsea wireless instrumentation in the worldwide underwater technology and ocean science industry”.
