ABERDEEN, UKAllseas will deploy WFS Technologies’ new Seatooth Pipelogger for real-time measurement of process temperature on a newly installed subsea pipeline system.

The pipeline has a total gas throughput capacity of 31.5 bcm/yr.

WFS’ Pipelogger is a real-time, wireless technology that can operate at depths of up to 2,000 m (6,562 ft) without the need for periodic ROV inspection.

The new Mark III version features a hot-swappable sensor configuration and provides the capability to develop subsea cloud networks for real-time analytics.

WFS Technologies is an industry pioneer of the Subsea Internet of Things (SIoT) devices.

Moray Melhuish, commercial director at WFS Technologies, said: “By combining our proven Seatooth technology with the ability to hot-swap components, we are able to future proof the installation by enabling the simple addition of capability as the requirement emerges.

“This can include ultrasonic flow, vibration, cathodic protection status, ultrasonic thickness and metocean conditions, as well as the initial requirement – in this case, the monitoring of process temperature.”
