EPS offers support for pipeline/cable lay operations by ROV. The ROV will assist the pipeline laying operations by monitoring the pipeline position and integrity at/or in the vicinity of the touchdown point.
The ROV will either be deployed from a survey support vessel or from the lay vessel itself.
The ROV main task will be to continuously monitor the laying operations giving the laying crew the necessary guidance through the process especially in critical stages when laying of a pipeline at a specific distance from an existing pipeline or cable.
The separation between both products will be monitored using the ROV obstacle avoidance sonar.
