MEC-FIT' is a new inspection system using a patented subsea electromagnetic Eddy Current technology with deployment from a Remote Operated Vehicle to provide a reliable and technically advanced inspection solution for general risers and flexible risers.
The MEC-FIT' system was developed by Innospection Ltd in response to market demand for general riser and flexible riser inspections operated from offshore installations. The alliance with Fugro Subsea Services Ltd enables the new inspection system to be interfaced with a ROV to deliver a technically advanced inspection solution during offshore operations.
Capabilities of MEC-FIT'
Features of MEC-FIT'
MEC-FIT' consists of a clamp-on cage which allows the scanning device to be attached to the outer surface of the riser around its full circumference. The cage is deployed onto the riser via a ROV and moves along the riser for inspection. The inspection head contains the permanent magnet unit which can be controlled in its field strength by hydraulic valves and the eddy current sensors which are connected to the ROV interface.
The signal data is transferred in real time via the ROV umbilical to the inspection computer located at the ROV control unit on the support vessel. This provides instantaneous inspection results.
