Aberdeen-headquartered Ashtead Technology has won a deal with Van Oord, a Dutch company providing dredging and offshore services, for the provision of video processing systems for worldwide offshore construction operations.
The company said on Tuesday that the agreement will see Ashtead supply five SubC Imaging DVRO systems to Van Oord, allowing them to record multiple 3D, HD, and SD video channels simultaneously for future offshore construction, dredging, and marine engineering projects.
SubC Imaging provides cameras with HD video capabilities that can capture and transmit high quality data from extreme water depths, the company noted.
Ross MacLeod, business development director at Ashtead Technology, said: “The SubC DVRO is the most comprehensive and complete media management solution on the market. It has been designed from the ground up, incorporating customized software and hardware to create a seamless technological solution for subsea visual monitoring.“
Ron Collier, vice president of business development at SubC Imaging, added: ” The product has been widely adopted as the preferred solution for clients conducting subsea operations around the world.”
Ashtead also said that, following a field trial in the Netherlands, the DVRO systems were custom built to meet Van Oord’s requirements. The system will allow Van Oord to perform in-depth inspections during marine construction activities.
