Visual inspection is a key component of any riser and umbilical integrity management plan, but marine growth cleaning with conventional ROV tools is often unsuitable for plastic-coated flexibles.
Welaptega's Riser Cleaning and Inspection System (RCIS) provides a safe means to clean and visually-inspect risers for sheathing breaches and other anomalies, all without impacting production. Once cleaned, inspection can be performed by using a conventional ROV camera, or four cameras positioned on the RCIS, to generate a 360° close visual inspection. The video feeds from the 360° CVI can further be used to identify changes in riser diameter if desired.
Acute areas of surface damage can be fully quantified using Welaptega’s advanced 3D Modelling system.
