Collaboration between Demoliciones Submarinas and IHCantabria for the inspection of marine anchorages: new own depth record.

DSCN0837

The past 29th and 30th of December, technicians of Demoliciones Submarinas, IHCantabria and UnderOceans worked together on the inspection of the anchorage systems of various experimental and beacon buoys in the Bimep test site. This site, located in Armintza (Vizcaya) and owned by the Basque Government, is an infrastructure designed to test marine energy devices in the open seas. IHCantabria and Bimep have formed the TRL + consortium for the development of the marine energy industry.

For IHCantabria, this underwater exploration supposed a new own record in the inspection of anchorage systems linked to marine energies, since it exceeded 95 meters of depth. For that purpose, a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) was driven by IHCantabria technicians. The ROV is equipped with a camcorder, halogen spotlights, depth gauge, positioning system and 4 propellers that give it a great mobility.

On the part of Demoliciones Submarinas and UnderOceans, the team was composed of 5 deep depth diver specialists and a suitable boat of 15 meters length, with its crew, already expert in maneuvers in BIMEP.

In spite of the complicated meteoceanic conditions, due to the persistent wind and waves, the inspection was a success, providing all the required information regarding the state of the anchorage systems and the seabed around the devices.

Demoliciones Submarinas is a cantabrian company formed by divers and managers specialized in maritime work and services. Extensive experience in the field of marine renewable energies, in the execution and technical assistance of ports, submarine outfalls and other offshore infrastructures, as well as in rescues, refloating operations and ship inspections.
