An Aberdeen-based subsea technology firm has today announced the completion of a five-figure deal with energy service firm N-Sea.
Viewport3 has been contracted by the Dutch-owned firm to carry out subsea scanning.
The deal, which represents repeat business between the two firms, is understood to be a high five-figure deal.
The tech firm said it will supply 3D scanning of mooring links, providing 3D data to “help with clamp and cofferdam design”.
Richard Drennan, one of the co-founders and directors of Viewport3, said: “N-Sea’s approach to problem solving is the perfect platform for our technology.
“Working with them last year proved to be a catalyst for growth in our most successful year to date.
“As a result of that project, the customer gained confidence in our ability to deliver pin-point accurate data in a market-leading time-frame.”
Viewport3 claims it photogrammetry technique can provide sub-millimetric data “in less than half the time the operation would typically take”.
Fellow director and co-founder, Chris Harvey, added: “We take home sub-millimetric data that our customers can rely on.
“It’s a crucial point – the accuracy of the point-cloud data that we collect will ensure that the design of the custom clamp precisely matches the intended geometry.
“As this will eliminate the need for the clamp to be re-worked on site, vessel days will be reduced, potentially generating savings running into seven figures.
“The simplicity of our capture process will also save time during the project – we can begin scanning as soon as we enter the water, and integrate readily into existing work-flows, minimising disruption and risk.”
