Five big reasons to be in Houston this May
There is more to our latest version of world's first subsea CT scanner than ever before. Tracerco has developed their unique DiscoveryTM subsea pipeline inspection instrument for flow assurance and integrity issues for ultra deep-water applications and will be demonstrating it at the NASA Neutral Buoyancy Lab (NBL). Here's five big reasons you shouldn't miss it.
When: May 7th and 8th 5:30pm-9:00pm
Where: NASA NBL Houston, TX
Who: Open for interested parties to register
1. The new crawler system 65% of customers want
When we first launched DiscoveryTM in July 2013 we held a webcast with Offshore magazine. The number one question we were asked was 'Can it move itself along the pipeline?' Taking up 10% of all questions asked. Overall in discussions with customers since then, we have found around 65% were keen to have this functionality. In response to this industry feedback we set about equipping the new ultra deep-water version with its own crawler system. This will be the first time it is available for the industry to see.
2. Twice as clear resolution
We have refined the algorithms to give even clearer tomographic images of pipeline conditions at close to a millimetre resolution. DiscoveryTM allows flow assurance and integrity issues to be identified on line in real time with no interruption to pipeline operations.
3. 6.2 million gallons of fresh, clear water
The NASA NBL houses a pool of 6.2 million gallons of fresh water. There will never be a better opportunity to get a clear view of DiscoveryTM in action. Cameras are positioned along the pool walls and you will be able to see very clearly the deployment of the instrument which wouldn't be possible in normal subsea conditions.
4. One lead inventor
The physicist behind the technology, Dr. Emanuele Ronchi will be presenting and taking questions on Discovery. Emanuele has developed the science behind DiscoveryTM from ground up and together with the rest of the team he has spent over two years working with customers to achieve the instrument we have today. The talk will provide an overview of the DiscoveryTM technology and will show an extensive amount of both simulated and experimental results on a variety of pipelines and conditions.
5. Benefit from 73 collective years of experience in the subsea industry
Since the demo will include a Q&A portion as well as a meet and greet there is plenty of opportunity to discuss your individual requirements with one of our experienced experts who will be available throughout the demo.
