Pipe-trackers acquired by Allseas pipe-laying specialist.

Teledyne TSS : 29 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Undersea surveillance system from Teledyne TSS to be used for detection and surveillance of underwater pipes.
The Swiss-based pipe-lay specialist Allseas Group has placed an order for four
Teledyne TSS 440 pipe trackers. To extend its survey operations, Allseas has acquired four Schilling ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles) depth rated to 4,000 metres. These will be equipped with advanced detection and survey technology including the Teledyne TSS 440 pipe tracker systems and dual head SeaBat 7125 multibeam echo sounders.

Allseas is one of the biggest offshore pipe laying and sub-sea construction companies in the world, operating specialised pipe laying vessels like the Solitaire. The company was founded in 1985 since when it has carried-out all types of offshore and subsea construction projects.

The Teledyne TSS 440 is now the leading system for pipe and cable tracking with over almost 100 systems being sold since its launch in 2003. It is widely used by the oil and gas and the submarine cables industries to locate and survey pipelines and cables on or below the seabed at water depths of up to 3,000m (9,843 ft).

The Teledyne TSS 440 is typically mounted on a ROV and uses pulse induction technology in conjunction with an advanced algorithm to detect the target. Depending on the size and shape of the target, the 440 offers detection ranges 30 to 50 per cent greater than previous models. The superior range means that it can also deal with the potential errors that arise when a cable is in an open trench or passing through a rock berm.
