Subsea Inspection, Repair and Maintenance IRM

Cygnus ultrasonic testing equipment permits for fast and efficient ultrasonic thickness measurement (UTM) to be performed on subsea structures and underwater equipment that include:

  • Subsea pipelines
  • Jetties, pontoons, piers and pilings
  • Offshore rigs and structures
  • Well heads
  • Manifolds
  • Bridges
  • Caissons
  • Canal locks
  • Hawser sections and shackles
  • Shipping hulls
  • Support members

Structures such as these require specialized underwater inspection equipment to measure metal thickness when carrying out routine subsea maintenance checks and surveys.

Cygnus has a dedicated range of diver-held, wrist-mounted and ROV-Mountable ultrasonic thickness gauges. With nearly 40 years of experience in this sector, Cygnus understands the need for a ruggedized, reliable ultrasonic testing instrument that won’t let you down in these hostile conditions. Our Cygnus Underwater gauge has been the industry standard for over 20 years for taking accurate underwater thickness measurements. It is one of our best-sellers and can be found on most offshore rigs, structures and Dive Support Vessels.

All Cygnus subsea gauges and ROV mounted units will relay thickness data to the surface (topside) for monitoring, recording or data-logging. Cyglink, our proprietary Windows-based software, offers an easy interface with our subsea equipment.
