Stinger Technology AS awarded Statoil test pilot for Gina Krog periodic structural ROV inspection.
STAVANGER 22 August 2107 – Statoil has awarded a test pilot for the performance of periodic structural ROV inspections using equipment developed by Stinger and partners for mini ROV inspections offshore Norway. All the operations will be performed from the platform without any support vessels, in opposition to previous inspections performed by larger subsea contractors in 2015 and 2016. The contract will combine the use of existing proprietary MSS ROV technology in combination with equipment developed especially for this this application. Bjarte Langeland, CEO Stinger: “We are happy to be able to present new and revolutionary ROV concepts and technology to the industry, producing significant cost savings.”
The challenge was to get into a tank structure, through a 30 cm predrilled hole, and clean welds for close visual inspection and non-destructive testing. The solution was to build a small but powerful ROV around a set of high-pressure nozzles. It has proven to be very effective and are currently on assignment for customers in the North Sea. The system is based on Stinger's ARROV architecture with remote control from the surface.
More than 450 delegates attended the biggest ever single gathering of international subsea robotic drone systems for use in the oil and gas industry the 2.nd. - 3.rd. October at TAU close to Stavanger. In addition, aerial drones, subsea seawater injection and a floating wind power research hub was demonstrated.
