Leiden (The Netherlands), 3 May 2014.

 

After elaborate testing and successful deployments in past projects, Heerema, a large Dutch Marine Contractor, awarded nCentric as the main inter-vessel communication supplier for the installation of Chevron’s Big Foot.

 

“During the tow out and installation of the Big Foot platform Heerema requires an inter-vessel communication system to exchange over 30 video feeds between all vessels involved”, said Sven De Brabander, Head Operations US of nCentric. “The only option was to build a high bandwidth wireless solution using nCentric Technology. Each leg of the platform is equipped with 8 remotely operated subsea camera’s. Our mission is to assemble the images on the platform and transmit them to all vessels in the field.”

 

After a successful test during the installation of Shell’s Olympus and Chevron’s JSM platform, the system will now be used during the full duration of the Big Foot project.
