Remote Subsea Monitoring Utilizing High Bandwidth Optical Data Telemetry

New technology developed by Ashtead Technology and Hydromea utilizing high bandwidth optical data telemetry is proving to be a game changer for remote subsea structure monitoring systems.

To support the safe and effective installation of subsea structures such as subsea templates, structural monitoring systems are frequently used to ensure there is no damage or stress during installation and structures are positioned in the correct location and orientation. Most subsea structures are installed using bespoke autonomous monitoring systems which are typically fitted to the structure onshore and removed once the structure is successfully positioned on the seabed.
