MTR100: Five "Ones to Watch"
and control of low power subsea and topside equipment, Andrea Alessi, Offshore Renewable Energy Program Manager, ENI, told the Offshore Mediterranean Conference (OMC) in Italy earlier this year.This could even extend to powering electric actuators and AUVs, including those forming ENI’s Clean Sea concept, as well as creating security cordons around offshore platforms during decommissioning or other activities to avoid using a manned vessel.Fred.

Unmanned Vehicles May Soon Take Up Residency Subsea
, Sabertooth is fitted with sensor reactive control and enhanced navigation capabilities, says Peter Erkers, sales director, underwater systems, during the Subsea Valley conference in Oslo in March. These capabilities, including autonomous docking, got Sabertooth on Italian oil firm Eni’s Clean Sea project, a subsea monitoring system covering oil spill detection, pre-planned surveys along flowlines and pipelines, and inspection of subsea production systems (SPS).A Sabertooth is also being used in resident system project for offshore wind farms, being developed by U.K.-based Modus Seabed Interventi
Eni Debuts ‘Clean Sea’ Technology
Eni’s Clean Sea technology: from research laboratories to industrial application in the Mediterranean and West Africa. Clean Sea, proprietary technology designed by Eni's research laboratories, will be used for the first time for marine environmental monitoring and offshore asset inspection in the Mediterranean region and West Africa. Clean Sea is the result of one of Eni’s most recent research and development projects, focusing on environmental characterization and protection. Clean Sea aims to ensure improved marine environmental protection by enhancing the
Breakthrough in Asset and Environmental Scrutiny
Benefits to asset integrity and environmental monitoring of oil and gas installations will come from a project developed by EniNorge and Tecnomare called Clean Sea (continuous long-term environmental and asset integrity monitoring at sea). The Clean Sea team has found answers to key issues, like the early warning of spills and leakages, with imaginative technological solutions using a Sabertooth hybrid AUV/ROV from Saab Seaeye. They sought to overcome the current shortcomings of environmental monitoring and inspection of oil and gas infrastructures. Usually such work is restricted to an annual
