ABERDEEN, UKVan Oord has contracted Ashtead Technology to supply video processing systems to support the Dutch contractor’s global offshore construction operations.

Ashtead will supply five SubC Imaging DVRO systems, allowing Van Oord them to record multiple 3D, HD, and SD video channels simultaneously for future offshore construction, dredging, and marine engineering projects.

The DVRO systems are said to deliver vivid underwater video footage in real-time, also allowing the user to add overlays, stream video and audio over a secure network.

Following a field trial in the Netherlands, the DVRO systems were custom built to meet Van Oord’s requirements.
