Environment Quality Services (EQS) has successfully assisted in a decommissioning project offshore Angola. Dubai-based EQS deployed their Saab Seaeye Falcon to assess the integrity of the offshore structures via visual inspection and image gathering.

Carlos Rodrigues, CTO, of EQS, commented, The Falcon supports EQS in their aim to fulfil specific works in a safe and cost-effective manner by delivering accurate and relevant information.”

Rodrigues said that the Falcon is an ideal resource for specialist work as it can handle an array of cameras, sensors, tooling and complex data gathering systems that can easily be added or changed thanks to the Falcon iCON intelligent module- focused distributed control architecture.

The Falcon is the top selling robot of its class and its success is attributed to it being a portable, metre-sized, intelligent, powerful highly mahneuverable, easy-to-use vehicle with a depth rated range to 1,000 metres.

It has a reliability record covering more than one million hours underwater, including deep tunnel work. The Falcon can remain stable in turbulent waters and strong currents whilst undertaking both robust and precision tasks.

The structures inspected on the platform offshore Angola included the platform (jacket), well head, protection dome, pipelines and umbilical. EQS helped the offshore energy clients navigate the complex environmental regulatory landscape to achieve compliance as well.
