Subsea service provider Sapura acquired eight units of Exail Rovins’ Nano Inertial Navigation System (INS), the company said in a Feb. 1 press release.

The Nano INS is intended to significantly enhance Sapura’s ROV capabilities in offshore installation of subsea equipment.

Rovins Nano INS will help Sapura deploy subsea hardware, such as templates, manifolds and spools onto the seabed. Equipped with advanced sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, the INS will function as the central component in the ROV’s navigation and positioning system. It also serves a vital role in determining the ROV’s position, orientation and velocity with precision, which is essential for the accurate positioning and installation of subsea equipment.

This integration is set to optimize Sapura’s overall operational standards of efficiency and accuracy.
