FlexMoT for Monitoring & Detection of Offshore leaks

Leaks on offshore platforms present a hazard to the marine environment and human health. The monitoring system FlexMoT will detect irregularities and provide a warning system for disasters. The system was presented at this year’s OCEANS’16 in Monterey.   (Rostock/Darmstadt/Graz) Accidents in offshore oil & gas drilling are dangerous. The damage caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico five years ago shows how high the costs can be for nature and those responsible. Now, a solution was presented at this year’s OCEANS Conference.   FlexMoT is an
