MULTICAM aides successful well installation
MULTICAM™ is a low cost camera system for fixing onto subsea structures to provide a vital visual aid during critical subsea installation operations.
High currents, coupled with low subsea visibility – at times less than three feet – restricted ROV capability creating the potential for delays in the completion program. Operating parameters also meant viewing angles on a traditional ROV camera were not useful so a seperate camera system needed to be deployed.
A simple, fully extendable and multi-plane adjustable mounting bracket that clamped to the existing structure enabled Claxton to attach unidirectional cameras to confirm actuation. A weak-link system enabled the umbilical to be retrieved and the camera/light assemblies to stay in place on the tree.
