This paper describes technologies, methods and results of automated subsea inspection of tether string welds, and provides valuable information, enabling our customers the correct and beneficial choice of method for scanning tether string welds.
Life extension of offshore platforms and change/increase of loads at the platforms has led to increasing requirements for documentation of the condition of the welds.
FORCE Technology has performed subsea inspection of tether string welds for more than ten years, and hence contributed to the safe operation of several platforms.
The fast growing demand for accurate and professional scan methods, as well as detailed documentation of tether string welds' conditions, drive continuous improvement of existing technologies and development of new tools to meet customers' needs.
