Subsea 7, a global leader in the delivery of offshore projects and services for the evolving energy industry, and Xodus Group, an autonomous subsidiary of Subsea 7, are to be recognised at the 2021 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston with a Spotlight on New Technology® Award for Subsea 7 Nano Engineered Sensor Platform (Subsea 7 NESP).
The advanced nano engineered sensor platform was selected based on its innovative technology, broad appeal to the energy industry, and significant impact with benefits beyond existing technologies.
Steve Wisely, Senior Vice President of Subsea 7’s UK and Global IRM region, says, “The Offshore Technology Conference’s Spotlight on New Technology® Award highlights the global innovations that are leading the transformation of the energy industry, and we are proud to be recognised for that.”
“We see Subsea 7 NESP as a promising step towards our key strategic priorities of environmental sustainability and operational efficiencies and we believe it can have a significant impact on the wider industry,” continues Wisely.
Subsea 7 NESP, developed in collaboration with Xodus, is a transformative solution that can continuously monitor fatigue and corrosion offshore, reducing opex in these areas. The wireless nano-technology sensor can be deployed efficiently and easily across any operating asset. Subsea 7 NESP, which requires no power supply or batteries, offers a scalable, cost effective, zero maintenance solution to extend asset life and improve uptime.
Steve Hamilton, Xodus’ Chief Technical Authority – EMEA says, “We are proud to have worked in collaboration with Subsea 7 to bring this this innovative technology to market quickly and for it to be recognised by the OTC.”
“The NESP technology fully integrates with our Xodus Asset Management & Integrity Network (XAMIN) tool which allows our experts, infrastructure owners and operators to capture design, installation, testing, operating, inspection and decommissioning information within a single system. This additional capability means we can further increase efficiency, ensure regulatory compliance, and help optimise the performance of assets,” adds Hamilton.
In announcing the award win, Leigh Ann Runyan, Executive Director of the Offshore Technology Conference said, “The Offshore Technology Conference showcases the best and brightest in the offshore energy sector, and the winners of the OTC’s Spotlight on New Technology Award are paving the way for our industry for years to come. As demonstrated by the Nano Engineered Sensor Platform, Subsea 7 and Xodus are creating the step-change innovations needed to power the future of subsea development.”
