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.
