TDW Offshore Services released its SmartTrack remote tracking and pressure-monitoring system to the global marketplace. The proprietary system, which received full ATEX certification for use in Zone 1 hazardous locations from DNV, was used by TDW to carry out pipeline pressure isolation operations in conjunction with TDW’s SmartPlug isolation system.
“We made the decision to make the SmartTrack system readily accessible to operators and service companies that want to avail themselves of the wide-ranging benefits it offers,” says Enzo Dellesite, Director – Global Market Development Offshore for TDW.
The SmartTrack can remotely track inline tools within pipelines up to a thickness of 50mm. It is also capable of tracking specially-designed pigs in sequences used to flood, clean, and gauge pipelines during pre-commissioning. For subsea operations, transceivers can operate in depths to 3,000m with a maximum cable length of 1,200m.
