USA: BlueView, SeaTrepid Announce Teaming Agreement
BlueView Technologies and SeaTrepid International announce a teaming agreement to deliver offshore/onshore operations support for BlueView’s line of 2D and 3D underwater imaging and measurement solutions.
BlueView is the world leader in compact acoustic imaging and measurement technology, and SeaTrepid International, is the premier provider of observation and mid-range class ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) services. Recently, the first project under this agreement was successfully completed assisting Oceaneering with a jack-up leg scour monitoring project in the North Sea.
Under this agreement, BlueView’s Field Support Service Group headed by Jonathan Robertson will train and certify SeaTrepid technicians on all operational aspects of its BV5000 3D Mechanical Scanning systems and its 2D Multibeam Imaging Sonar. SeaTrepid technicians will be available through BlueView’s Field Support Service Group to provide customers with in-field deployment and operational support to ensure project success. SeaTrepid will provide a full range of underwater project support services including project planning, in-field BlueView equipment support, 3D point cloud processing, and generation of report deliverables. The BlueView SeaTrepid partnership will focus on support for a wide variety of underwater applications including oil spill response, diver support, pipeline survey, marine construction, and structure/facility inspections.
“We are delighted to team with SeaTrepid and expand our field support capabilities to ensure the best possible results with BlueView equipment,” said Jason Seawall, BlueView Technologies COO. “This agreement stems from years of successful joint field activities with SeaTrepid, and I look forward to working with them in this new capacity.”
Bob Christ, SeaTrepid President and CEO stated “Our field technicians have worked with BlueView’s underwater imaging and measurement systems for several years with excellent results for our customers. We look forward to becoming a premier field support organization for BlueView’s entire line of underwater systems.”
