Underwater WIFI camera and light technology has been aiding in the monopile installation work at offshore substations.

Early this year MacArtney Benelux accepted a large LUXUS PUR order for customised wireless camera and LED light systems. To be utilised for the guidance and inspection of J-tube cage installation onto monopiles for offshore substations.

The LUXUS PUR camera and LED lights help wirelessly guide the installation of the J-tube cage onto the monopile using a battery-powered control box mounted atop the installation frame. Images are transmitted to the control room aboard the vessel via a WIFI antenna connected to the control box on the installation frame. The WIFI connection features auto-connect and low-latency.

Supplying a full camera and lights scope for this project MacArtney included 24 LUXUS PUR Cameras, 24 LUXUS PUR LEDs, 8 Cable systems, WIFI control boxes and rechargeable battery pack

The camera housing is made from PUR (polyurethane) and equipped with PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) lenses has a depth rating of 200 metres.

Featuring a lightweight and compact design, the application of this range includes general underwater inspection, winch and deck monitoring and ROV system support.

Commenting on the LUXUS PUR range, Sales Manager for MacArtney Benelux, Jeroen Vercruysse remarks,

“The LUXUS PUR range is an obvious choice in this type of installation process. The cost-effectiveness of the LUXUS range paired with its lightweight and compact design ensures quick and well-controlled offshore installation processes. Together with a specially engineered control system, tailored to the customers' needs, a complete wireless and cost-effective video system can be supplied.”

The LUXUS PUR range, launched in 2017, has proved a versatile and reliable tool for the support of offshore wind farm installations.
