Logan Builds ROV A-Frame for Gulf of Mexico Use

Hydraulic repair, manufacturing and rental company Logan Industries delivered a custom A-frame to TechnipFMC for one of the services company's new state-of-the-art remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV), which will deploy later this year.The Logan A-frame is a heavy weather, work class ROV launching system, designed to move some of the largest, work class ROVs in the market. The A-frame is designed for the ROV and a tether management system (TMS) on top, and can handle 17 MT overboard at a 5.3 m overboard reach. It has enough room to fully separate the ROV and TMS and stage them

Are O&G Digital Twins Useful? DNV GL Moves to Find Out

representation of a physical asset and its behavior, DNV GL said.DNV GL is developing and testing a methodology for the qualification of digital twins which will provide that assurance, and ultimately encourage wider adoption of the technology in the oil and gas sector. An initial partnership with TechnipFMC has led to the creation of the pilot, which is now being opened to the wider industry.Digital twins are a rapidly developing technology widely expected to become a significant contributor to the future management of major industrial sites. The digital twin market is estimated to grow from USD 3

the accumulated levels of plastic. In the final, teams had to design and build an ROV with additional capability to retrieve the plastic.The teams then had to test their design and present their findings to a panel of judges, which included representatives from Subsea UK and industry sponsors, BP and TechnipFMC.Judges assessed the teams throughout the day and points were awarded for teamwork, design and maneuverability of their model, marketing material and the final delivery of their sales and marketing pitch.Now in its third year, the STEM Challenge has been developed to encourage pupils to study STEM

been about the vehicles, there’s also been a lot of focus behind the scenes on creating electric tooling. The industry has relied on hydraulic tooling since tooling has been used, with the benefits and drawbacks that come with it. Leading the field has been Schilling Robotics, now a part of the TechnipFMC group. But, for electric vehicles to really make to most of being all-electric, they really need to be free of the burdens of hydraulic systems. Suppliers are coming up with solutions.Electric manipulationSaab Seaeye is already well versed with all-electric technology, having the broadest fleet
