Subsea pipeline inspections require the highest level of accuracy to produce high-quality data. Pipeline integrity depends on it. For unpiggable pipes the TSC Subsea ARTEMIS™ offers a unique solution using ART technology to inspect subsea pipelines giving high accuracy and reliable wall thickness measurements.
The TSC Subsea ARTEMIS™ acoustic resonance technology system enables ROV inspections without the need for field joint coating removal, greatly reducing integrity risk and the cost of expensive inspection operations. The ARTEMIS™ is compatible with most work-class ROVs and delivers real time data that provides a 2D image of the wall thickness of the inspected area. Applications in subsea conditions are vast and include:
- Through-coating inspections
- Piggyback solutions
- Field joint inspections
- Higher accuracy
- Minimal dredging requirements
- Minimal vessel time
- Life extension of the equipment
The inspection can also provide information about coating thickness and identifies whether a loss of wall thickness is on the outside or inside of the inspection area of the pipe.
