Surveillance and intelligence systems
Survey critical parts of subsea systems to enhance efficiency.
RACS is an automated surveillance system that continuously measures the level of water in the flexible riser annulus, eliminating the need for expensive vacuum or pressure testing.
A real-time alarm provides early warning of a breach in the flexible riser’s outer sheath.
The system provides highly accurate data to assess the armor corrosion risk and flexible pipe life. The data comprises
RACS is integrated into floating production facilities and connects to the annular space of flexible risers. Data and alarms are directly ported to the floating facility control system.
Data collected by the system enable advanced remodeling of the armor layer fatigue life, making it possible to plan replacement operations or asset life extension, if necessary.
