Prototype ROV manipulator tool and Inspection Jig
The ROV will carry the inspection head from the surface and deploy it onto the subsea riser or subsea flow line. The ROV will provide the power to operate the Inspection Jig, the isotope control mechanism and the computed radiographic integral scanner/reader system. Special tooling will need to be designed and developed for manipulating and positioning the inspection head (i.e. isotope container and computed radiographic system) in the correct location on the flexible riser. This is called the Inspection Manipulator tool. The ROV will be able to precisely manoeuvre the Inspection Jig into the required location on the riser.
