Carbon Trust invites views on underwater inspection
As part of its Offshore Wind Accelerator Programme, the Carbon Trust is inviting responses to a survey on underwater inspection methods in both the oil & gas and renewables sectors.

The Carbon Trust stated that it has identified that offshore wind is increasingly reliant on a number of sub-sea inspection and survey operations and that these can prove both risky and costly to the industry.

Therefore, the Carbon Trust is seeking to understand what methodologies and technologies are currently in use for performing sub-sea surveys, inspections and other works (in both oil and gas, and renewables) and investigating areas which need further development as well as promising technologies.

A key part of the work is to gather information from a wide range of stakeholders through questionnaires and associated engagement.  

The data collected through the questionnaire will be processed and anonymised by the project team, and presented to the Carbon Trust (Foundation Technical Working Group). The project team is made of the companies INNOSEA, Cruz Atcheson, and Everoze.

Answers from the questionnaire are expected for the 2nd December 2016 at latest. Later answers will also be considered, but may not be part of the report presented to the Technical Working Group.
