Stinger contract award
Stinger Technology, the next generation subsea marine robotics company, has been awarded an R&D contract with Neptune Energy, for the development, qualification and field trials of autonomous inspection/ intervention subsea drones.
The solutions that will be developed for Neptune Energy aims to save costly vessel operations and reduce risk through continuous availability of versatile intervention tools.
This contract confirms Stinger’s position as a forefront company as supplier of solutions for autonomous and onshore supported underwater drones in the energy sector.
Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. have contracted Stinger for services related to planning and preparing site testing of an AUV equipped with a robot arm for performing subsea pipeline inspections.
The challenge was to get into a tank structure, through a 30 cm predrilled hole, and clean welds for close visual inspection and non-destructive testing. The solution was to build a small but powerful ROV around a set of high-pressure nozzles. It has proven to be very effective and are currently on assignment for customers in the North Sea. The system is based on Stinger's ARROV architecture with remote control from the surface.
