L3 demos ASV-ROV operations

4th April 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


L3 Technologies has demonstrated the ability of its C-Worker 7 ASV to deploy, operate and recover an ROV, the company announced on 1 April.

The proof of concept demonstration, which took place over two weeks in Cawsand Bay, Plymouth, UK, saw the C-Worker 7 ASV deploy an inspection-class ROV for vertical and horizontal subsea inspection.

The demonstration follows completion of phase one of an Innovate UK part-funded project – Autonomous Robotic Intervention System for Extreme Maritime Environments. The project involved the University of Exeter as an academic partner and was supported by BP.

Phase two of the project has already begun and will lead to further development of the ROV launch and recovery capability, including additional proof of concept demonstrations.

The system has been developed for use in hazardous offshore environments for operations such as jacket and hull inspections, and pipeline and cable survey in oil and gas and renewable energy applications.
