Subsea LiDAR used for 3D Printing

3D subsea laser scanning can offer significant cost and efficiency advantages in areas such as asset inspection and asset decommissioning. In one example, Fugro contracted 3D at Depth for its underwater 3D data collection utilizing subsea LiDAR scanning. Fugro was asked to excavate, clean, measure and identify the subsea wellheads in order to design an appropriate ‘hot tap’ connector and to assess feasible options for abandonment. However, detailed information about the wellheads was scarce, as their age limited availability of measurements, manufacture, and other specifications. In this case, a fully accurate, full-sized physical model of a well part was 3D printed using the subsea LiDAR data. In World First, LiDAR Scanning and a 3D Printed Part Help Subsea Well Reach Final Abandoned Status
