Bowtech supplies Isotek with miniature cameras for subsea use

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UKBowtech Products Ltd. is supplying miniature underwater cameras with integral LEDs to Isotek Oil and Gas Ltd. for use on a diverless subsea pipeline repair system.

The L3C-400-MICRO cameras are fitted with pressure-relief valves to enable safe operation in an argon-rich atmosphere subsea. The cameras are also supplied with right-angled adaptors to permit observation of the tool in operation from all angles from restricted available camera positions.

Isotek developed its diverless subsea pipeline repair system for a multinational oil and gas client. The Bowtech L3C-400-MICRO camera was chosen due to its extremely compact size for use in the limited space available within the tool. Bowtech modified the standard camera to incorporate the pressure-relief valves. This is now available as an option if required by any customer.
