FlexiTRIM - Realtime rope inspection
Designed to clean and inspect flexible risers and wire mooring lines, the ROV deployed FlexiTrim couples video inspection with inline tubular diameter measurement. An array of high quality subsea cameras provide a 360 degree close visual record of the rope surface. In addition sensors constantly monitor the diameter across several planes, providing realtime diameter measurement, alerting operators to issues that could affect the rope's life time.
The video below shows the tool running on sheathed wire rope.
