Innovatum enjoys overseas success
Innovatum’s portable iPSS pipeline inspection and survey system, which can be controlled from a single keyboard and mouse.
Successful overseas sales of its Smartrak subsea cable and pipeline survey system were reported by Innovatum at last month’s Seawork International, with 25 models delivered to customers in Abu Dhabi, China, Peru, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan.
The latest Series 9 of a range first introduced in 2007 is claimed to be smaller and lighter, with a performance superior to earlier multi-mode systems. Providing target depth and horizontal position in real-time with graphical displays, it can also be fitted to smaller ROVs than other comparable systems and is available with an altimeter and spare sensors. Centimetric accuracies at greater burial depths are possible, said Innovatum’s managing director, Terry Slater.
Meanwhile, the Bury St Edmunds UK company also reports encouraging interest in its iPSS portable survey system, incorporating all necessary computers and interfaces with additional options for industry standard software. Comprising a complete cable, pipeline and hydrographic survey assembly in two portable cases, it also includes a USBL acoustic navigation facility in addition to interfaces for ROVs, towed sleds and vessel mounted sensors.
Systems have already been commissioned in Israel and Peru.
