  • Patent number: 10464645
    Abstract: A method of adjusting buoyancy of an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) includes measuring buoyancy drift of the UUV when underwater. After docking the UUV with a subsea station, a quantity of a flowable buoyancy-adjustment material held onboard the UUV is changed by transferring that material from the station to the UUV or from the UUV to the station. A buoyancy adjustment system for a UUV includes: an onboard tank for holding a variable quantity of the buoyancy-adjustment material and upwardly-opening and downwardly-opening passageways communicating with the tank for transferring the buoyancy-adjustment material to or from the UUV. The subsea station includes: a dock for docking a UUV; a holding tank for holding the buoyancy-adjustment material; and at least one upwardly-opening or downwardly-opening passageway aligned with the dock and communicating with the holding tank for transferring the buoyancy-adjustment material to or from the docked UUV.

  • Patent number: 10315740
    Abstract: An inspection, monitoring, maintenance or construction task is performed on a subsea structure by using an underwater vehicle to carry a submersible package to the subsea structure. The package comprises a tool or sensor arranged to perform the required task on the subsea structure, and an on-board power unit and controller arranged to power and control the tool or sensor. The package is transferred from the underwater vehicle to be supported by the subsea structure. The underwater vehicle can then stand off from the package. While the package is supported by the subsea structure, the tool or sensor of the package performs the required task on the subsea structure, powered and controlled by the on-board power unit and controller of the package.

  • Patent number: 10175156
    Abstract: A test cell (10) for containing equipment (12) subject to pressure testing comprises a plurality of metal plate wall panels (14) and a mesh roof panel (16) formed from mesh strands (26) of a high strength material. Each wall panel has a lapped connection (18) with an adjacent wall panel. The mesh panel (16) may be formed from a ballistic fabric, and the mesh strands (26) may be wire, rope and braid of steel, metal, plastic, natural or composite fiber, or a combination thereof. In the event of a pressure failure of the equipment (12) under test, the roof panel (16) captures fragments of the equipment while allowing the dissipation of pressure shock waves through the apertures (28) in the mesh. The lapped connections (18) between wall panels (14) result in increased friction between adjacent wall panels (14) and thus an increase in the strength of the connection when subject to pressure shock waves.

  • Patent number: 9988129
    Abstract: A method provides power to a subsea equipment electrical system underwater, without a wet-mated electrical connection. The method includes temporarily coupling a rotary coupling element of a power source to the subsea equipment and turning that element to generate electric power on board the equipment. Subsea equipment that implements the method comprises: an on-board electric power generator connected to an electrical load such as a rechargeable battery to charge the battery when the generator is driven; and a rotary coupling element that is turned by an external drive to drive the generator. Alternative subsea equipment to implement the method comprises: a stator, but not a rotor, of an on-board electric power generator, which supplies current to the load when an externally-driven rotor is positioned adjacent to the stator and turned relative to the stator. A power source having a generator rotor is docked with the equipment for this purpose.

  • Patent number: 9387911
    Abstract: A subsea payload such as an AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle) or an AUV garage is lifted from an underwater location by flying a latch unit through the water to the payload. The latch unit carries a lift line toward the payload. The latch unit is then attached to the payload and the payload is lifted using tension applied through the lift line via the latch unit. The latch unit can also be used on a lift line to lower a payload and then to release the payload at an underwater location. The lift line is supported by a heave-compensating winch on a surface vessel that effects z-axis movement of the latch unit. The winch maintains tension on the lift line to prevent the lift line falling on the payload. Movement of the latch unit on x- and y-axes is effected by on-board thrusters.
