Offshore asset operators are increasing requesting high-quality subsea inspection data to improve the effectiveness of their offshore asset integrity management. This is particularly true during subsea pipeline inspection, for which Applus+ deploys ultra-high-resolution imaging to detect and size indications within a risk based inspection and as part of a subsea NDT programme.
Applus+ in Australia have designed and developed a variety of non-hydraulic, universal, automated inspection scanners to perform a variety of subsea NDT services at depths of up to 2500m.
