Inspection of the structural integrity of pipelines is a key part of preventing spillages and planning preventive maintenance. Although currently available inspection devices (commonly known as “pigs”) can provide good data quality, they can get stuck inside the pipeline causing blockages. As such, this activates a time consuming and costly unscheduled intervention to recover the apparatus and have the line back to operations.
BlueThink designed, prototyped and tested a communication module to be integrated to subsea system, monitor them and transmit data to a remote receiver, yet not increasing the assembly time or requiring additional connecting components.
BlueThink is developing a suite of wearable devices able to collect and share useful information related to the health and safety of human operators in hazardous environments.
