The Carbon Trust has invited responses to a survey on underwater inspection methods to support identified emerging technologies in both oil and gas and renewables as part of its Offshore Wind Accelerator Programme.
The Carbon Trust has identified that offshore wind is increasingly reliant on a number of subsea inspection and survey operations and that these can prove both risky and costly to the industry.
Therefore, the Carbon Trust is seeking to understand what methodologies and technologies are currently in use for performing subsea surveys, inspections and other works in both oil and gas and renewables, and investigating areas which need further development as well as promising technologies.
A key part of the work is to gather information from a wide range of stakeholders through questionnaires and associated engagement.
The data collected through this questionnaire will be processed and anonymized by the project team, and presented to the Carbon Trust (Foundation Technical Working Group). The project team is made of the companies INNOSEA, Cruz Atcheson, and Everoze.
Answers from the questionnaire are expected for the 2 December 2016 at latest. Later answers will also be considered, but may not be part of the report presented to the Technical Working Group.
