Aquatec deploys pressure monitoring loggers in North Sea

Published by , Editor

Aquatec recently engineered a pair of ROV-deployable magnetic mounts for a North Sea operator to allow two of their AQUAlogger® 310 oceanographic pressure and temperature data loggers to be mounted directly onto subsea cross braces on a platform at two separate depths.

Aquatec delivered the pre-programmed instruments, which needed just a simple magnetic actuation prior to deployment subsea to trigger logging. Both units have a “shake-to-show” feature which allows the user to see if they are logging before deployment via a useful LED indication.

The loggers are now recording wave-induced pressure variations to provide insight into the coming season’s dive operations, which will be carried out with new dive equipment. After the logging is complete, Aquatec’s engineering team will download and report on the logged data when the instruments are retrieved.

Engineering Director of Aquatec Group, Nicolas Lefebvre, said: “We are really glad that we can respond to our offshore customer’s urgent needs with the same professionalism as always even in these difficult times. Our team quickly developed, manufactured and tested a solution to meet the requirement of our client taking into account H&S and easy operation with a rapid turnaround time of just 10 working days. We are looking forward to analysing the data for our customer.”
