Case Study

Need

  • To survey inclined water filled tunnels to depth of 400M
  • To survey horizontal water filled tunnel length 950M to depth of 30M
  • Tunnel internal diameters 4.5M and 7M respectively

Challenges

  • Determine ROV position in the tunnel with respect to a datum
  • Locate individual features of interest at specific locations
  • Manage umbilical over the distance
  • Ensure sufficient lighting to record clear video along prescribed paths

Solution

  • Falcon ROV c/w Fibre Optic upgrade
  • Imagenex sonar to locate landmark features
  • Continuous colour video with frame grab
  • On screen captioning
  • Doppler Velocity Log to record distance travelled
