New Approach to Subsea Systems will Reduce Cost, Risk

by both divers and ROVs.   Mr Macleod added: “The underpinning philosophy has been to standardize instrumentation integration methods and to develop common building blocks that are integrated using simple and robust physical interfaces and software tools that are re-used across diverse applications to reduce risk and the time taken to configure and test these. “   This philosophy takes into account how data is transformed into valuable information and how the information is likely to be used to inform decisions both in real time and in a historic context.   The new

Rope & Wires: At the Forefront of Technology

expanding its operational capabilities in recent years to include the production of large diameter 12-strand lines known throughout the industry as Endura 12. These lines are comprised of 100% Dyneema fiber and are used across all of Teufelberger’s markets in some capacity in numerous very diverse applications. For example, these lines are present on towboats, barges, and help scientists to explore our ocean’s floors. Endura 12 is exceptionally strong, extremely low stretch, lightweight, and very durable, representing the ideal wire rope replacement because it requires much less manpower
