RS Aqua partners with Riptide Autonomous Solutions

RS Aqua, a leading and largest marine science technology distributor, have exclusively partnered with Riptide Autonomous Solutions to bring Riptide’s unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) technology to the UK and Ireland.

Riptide Autonomous Solutions are developers and manufacturers of a family of man portable Autonomous Undersea Vehicles.  Riptide launched their smallest form factor micro UUV (µUUV) in late 2015, with the first commercial deliveries in early 2016.  Since then, the technology has developed and matured, now with an established list of customers and collaborators now using these class-leading vehicles in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.  Riptide have since developed larger form factor UUVs, with vehicle diameters at 4.875”, 7.5” and 9.375”, and from 22” to 60” in length, allowing for many modular configurations for navigation, sensor and power technologies.   Larger vehicles better accommodate large sensor payloads and very long endurance missions.  All of Riptides vehicles share the benefits of ease of use, modular and versatile construction, ultra-low power processing, best in class hydrodynamics, and low cost.


RS Aqua are pleased to already be working with a number of UK users of Riptide technology, which complements RS Aqua’s established range of high performance, proven and easy to use marine science technologies.

GEBCO-Nippon foundation alumni team completes successful testing ahead of XPRIZE final

The GEBCO-Nippon Foundation Alumni Team successfully completed an extensive week of testing ahead of the final round of the Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE. The team was the first to register on-site in the port city of Kalamata, Greece, where eight teams are vying to be crowned champions of the $7 million global competition that aims to advance deep sea technologies for autonomous, fast, high-resolution ocean exploration.


All technical systems involved in the team’s concept have been put through their paces, including a purpose-built Kongsberg Maritime Hugin AUV System, rated to operate at depths up to 4,500 metres, and a SEA-KIT™ Unmanned Surface Vessel, USV Maxlimer. The SEA-KIT™ vessel has been designed and built by Hushcraft in the UK, and possesses a unique remotely controlled system to launch and recover the AUV. Autonomous navigation and control is provided by Kongsberg’s K-MATE autonomy engine.


In the final, the GEBCO-Nippon Foundation Alumni team will have just 24 hours to map at least half of the 500 square kilometre competition area at a resolution of 5 metres (horizontal) by 0.5 metres (vertical). Following the latest round of testing, the team is confident that they can meet this difficult challenge.

Baltic seabed survey contract marking first for iSURVEY

iSURVEY, a leading provider of survey and positioning services to the global oil and gas, offshore renewables and telecommunications markets, has successfully completed a 30-day geophysical seabed survey for Allseas, a major offshore pipelay and subsea construction company.


As part of the forthcoming Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, the contract marked a first for the iSURVEY Group. Taking on a vessel charter, the team had full contract responsibility for the vessel, marine, survey, processing and reporting elements of the entire scope.


The project involved the team identifying any obstructions or hazardous seabed features prior to forthcoming pipelay anchoring and mooring operations.

This 40km section of route survey took place in the German Baltic and was carried out from the SeaZip FIX, on charter to iSURVEY. This proved an ideal platform for the survey and ROV operations, with a moonpool deployment frame providing a retractable mounting location for vessel-based attitude monitoring, positioning and geophysical sensors. Combined Multi-beam Echo Sounder (MBES) and Side Scan Sonar (SSS) systems were utilised throughout the survey, along with a towed magnetometer / gradiometer system.


iSURVEY Offshore Managing Director, Andrew McMurtrie, commented: “We are pleased to play our part in the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, a significant construction scope. Having full control of the vessel spread, from a commercial and operational perspective, this is the nature of contracting model we aim to develop further. Working with SeaZip allowed us to do this in a highly co-operative way.

Comex Innovations breaks through in to north sea market with two successful projects this summer

Comex Innovations are pleased to announce the successful completion of their first two North Sea offshore inspection jobs using the ORUS3D underwater photogrammetry system. The system was selected for both jobs after successful discussions with clients at OI18 and subsequent meetings. Both operations called for the highest accuracy of measurement available on the market and our customers identified the ORUS3D system as the best solution for the jobs. With quick installation and short survey times, the clients in water period was reduced thus reducing the complexity and cost of the survey, whilst having no requirement for navigation or ROV sensors, maintains the integrity of the system by reducing errors from other data sets. Both projects were completed to the great satisfaction of the end client and the ORUS3D system is now being proposed for a range of other projects in 2019 and beyond.


The system lends itself to asset damage assessment and measurement, engineering measurement, decommission preplanning and chain and hull inspections. The system is also ideal for environmental and archaeological inspections.

DeltaTek banks eight-hours of rig time for Chevron with SeaCure technology

Well construction specialist, DeltaTek Global, has announced the inaugural deployment of its SeaCure technology.


The work scope for Chevron North Sea took place on the West Wick subsea appraisal well which is being drilled from the Ocean Guardian.

Providing major time and cost savings, the pioneering SeaCure cementing system delivers stabbed-in, inner string cementing for subsea wells and was deployed to cement a 30″ conductor casing. With no shoe track present, SeaCure eliminated the need to perform a dedicated clean out run prior to drilling commencing with a 12 1/4″ Bottom Hole Assembly (BHA) straight out of the 30″ float shoe.


The project is a continuation of SeaCure’s successful field trials completed earlier this year which were also supported by the Oil & Gas Technology Centre.


Launched in 2015, DeltaTek’s disruptive innovations, SeaCure® and ArticuLock® were created in response to the growing requirement for efficiently implemented, intelligent, cost saving and risk reducing products.
