Pipelines and cables are subjected to forces during their installation and operation in a subsea environment. Forces from such things as surrounding sea conditions, temperature changes, production fluid flow variances can create motions and vibrations in the pipelines and cables that potentially result in possible damage and premature fatigue if not understood and managed effectively. Understanding what is happening to a pipeline over a longer period of time than a standard ROV snapshot inspection, supports accurate long-term decision making.
The Mimir Motion Clamp is designed to provide continuous monitoring and recording of pipeline motion data on battery power alone, through a state-of-the-art multi-sensor array. Mimir Motion Clamp has been engineered to be a simple, independent, self-contained solution, for deployment along the pipeline. Capable of operating at depths of up to 3,000 msw, Mimir Motion Clamp provides an effective solution for continual monitoring of pipelines in deeper waters, as opposed to sporadic inspection in environments where regular ROV deployment is more complex.
Mimir Motion Clamp is supported by access to e-learning, product documentation and installation guides, through its own ‘Digital Technician’. The intuitive Mimir Digital Technician provides an easy way to configure and set-up the motion clamp on the back of the vessel, rather than relying on costly additional onsite specialist technicians and support.
