Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UKSeatronics, an Acteon company, has formed a new partnership with Norwegian subsea tooling firm LateraL AS.

The new agreement will provide Seatronics’ global customer base with access to the FlexiCal product line. FlexiCal is an ROV-mounted calliper that allows for direct measurements from point-to-point with real-time readout. The calliper is frequently used for measuring wear and corrosion on mooring chains, but Seatronics said it also performs on flanges, plates, structures, and numerous other subsea assets.

Phil Middleton, group managing director, Seatronics, said: “In this tight market, where there is a focus on asset integrity, Seatronics’ customers are demanding technology that will provide reliable, repeatable data, quickly. LateraL AS has several other innovative products, which we plan to bring to a wider market within this partnership.”

Keith Robertson, technical manager, LateraL AS, added: “In addition to the FlexiCal product, an additional product, FlexiClean, will also be available for rental from Seatronics’ global bases, with immediate availability.”

Seatronics said the addition of LateraL products enhances the ROV tooling capabilities it offers in conjunction with fellow Acteon company, J2 Subsea.
