BG Group’s FlatFish AUV project promises to bring solutions to deepwater infrastructure inspection challenges. The development of AUVs capable of being launched from FPSOs or actually being docked at the seafloor next to the subsea systems has been an industry goal for some years and offers a solution to two major problems: making deepwater subsea inspection become a simple task and decreasing the related costs. The FlatFish project concept was created by BG Brasil, a subsidiary of Shell, with Bremen, Germany-based DFKI, and Brazilian organizations SENAI-Cimatec and EMBRAPII as partners in the project.
