The Underwater Technology Foundation (UTF) has picked Tracerco as the winner of its first UTF Subsea Project Award.
The firm, which has developed the Discovery under water CT scanner, which recently performed its first commercial trials in deepwater Gulf of Mexico, also scooped an Offshore Technology Conference Spotlight on Technology Award, in May.
The UTF award program, held for the first time this year, was open to both intra- and inter-company subsea projects that represent solutions to challenges where the project team has accomplished the task successfully with focus on project execution, innovation, increased efficiency, HSE and a global commercial potential.
The project has to be recognized within the subsea industry and in operation with successful results. The award aims to recognize the individual(s) behind the project.
The UTF Foundation received 13 highly qualified proposals, which were evaluated by a UTF nominated jury comprising: Bob Allwood (SUT), Helge Haldorsen (SPE International/Statoil), Elaine Maslin (OE magazine European editor), Bjørn Søgård (DNV GL) and Vidar Fondevik (UTF/Nui).
The jury recognized Discovery’s innovative technology, the large global potential, the fact the technology is field proven with excellent results and that it contributes to both operators, inspection, maintenance and repair companies and suppliers. Paul Featonby, Technology Manager and Tim Hough, Discovery Technology Lead, both at Tracerco, are recognized for the technology and project execution.
UTF will honor Tracerco and the recognized individuals at UTC 17 – 18 June. You can also visit Tracerco’s stand #18 at the UTC Exhibition to learn more.
