Seatronics signs rental deal with Neptune

Seatronics, an Acteon company, has signed a rental agreement with Neptune Oceanographics, global leaders in the detection of leaks in subsea pipelines, risers and control systems. Seatronics now has access to Neptune’s range of leak detection systems globally.

Neptune, active in subsea leak detection since 1999, offers four leak detection methods: fluorescence (long range); passive acoustics; differential temperature; and gaseous hydrocarbon detection for both pipeline systems and seabed seepage. Long-range submersible fluorometers provide the unique solution of leak detection without the need to pass through the leaking fluid.

Phil Middleton, Group Managing Director, Seatronics, said, “With the addition of the Neptune range of leak detection systems to our portfolio we can focus on delivering everything on the ROV. There is great potential in the opportunities this agreement will offer.”

Chris Teal, Director, Neptune Oceanographics, added, “The rental agreement between Neptune and Seatronics is another positive step in the continuous development of our global subsea pipeline leak detection services. We are confident that the agreement will add significant value for both companies.”Seatronics offers an extensive product range suitable for applications including ROV survey, NDT inspection, positioning and oceanographic systems. The Neptune leak detection systems will complement Seatronics’ current offerings and reinforce its position at the forefront of the marine technology rental industry.
