WFS deploys new subsea wireless IP camera technology to enhance diver safetyCreated: Thursday, 18 April 2019 06:57Scotland-based WFS Technologies has deployed a new generation of subsea technology in the North Sea that has helped improve safety and reduce costs for the offshore oil and gas industryThe company stated that the computing and subsea wireless IP camera technology deployed on a pipeline construction project enhanced diver safety and generated significant cost savings by avoiding the need for additional subsea vessels. The work was undertaken for a new subsea pipeline that was recently installed and needed to bypass a platform being decommissioned. Once it reaches the termination point, the pig is thrown into the sea where it fragments. The solution, designed by wireless subsea device specialists WFS, came in the form of subsea HD cameras mounted on a standard subsea basket, wirelessly controlled and capturing the entire operation in high definition. Building on technology first developed in 2014 and using the Australian oil company Woodside for subsea IMR, WFS Technologies developed the Seatooth Video Mark II.
