Its first award was for the Seatooth SmartClamp, a smart, wireless structural monitoring system (SMS) for use on subsea structures. It incorporates the Seatooth wireless data processing and transmission platform offering short, medium and long-range hybrid communication options. As a result, the tool includes strain, vibration, pressure, and temperature monitoring.
The second award was for the Subsea Cloud Computing Network (SCCN). This is enabled by integrating with a SCM to create a subsea Wi-Fi hotspot. Seatooth smart devices, with edge computing and low power management systems are able to wirelessly connect directly to the network or cross-pollinate data using AUVs or ROVs for data harvesting.
The company said the SCCN reduces both operating and asset integrity management costs as well as capex and risk while also extending a field’s operating life and reducing its carbon footprint.
WFS also won the Small Business Award, which recognizes company’s with less than 300 employees.
Seatooth technology enables the automation and digitalization of subsea assets through its ability to communicate through steel, ground, sea water and the water-air boundary, the company said.
