LateraL has started 2016 with several new projects and new tool developments.
The FlexiClean MINI is now available! It is aimed at smaller ROV's and requires 70% less hydraulic flow than the full-size.
The picture below is of the prototype of the diver-held hull cleaner using two FlexiClean MINI's. The unit is due for sea-trials within the next few weeks and shows great promise.
An all-electric version of the FlexiClean (Flex-e-clean) is also under development for use with electric ROV's.
In addition we are working on a couple interesting engineering projects, using our range of subsea-curing epoxy in new and novel ways. (more on these projects will follow)
One of our customers taking the FlexiClean for a spin in air to examine reaction forces from the tool, up through the manipulator. As one can see from the video, the running is steady and smooth.
The summer season is always busy for LateraL and this year is no exception.
One job complete, one job ongoing, more jobs scheduled for July & August.
We have hired more staff and increased our tool-park to keep up with demand and are looking forward to what the next months have in store for us.
The FlexiClean is being well received by customers all over the world.
Cleaning off the coast of Ghana for Tullow Oil was smooth and quick, and Petrobras are currently testing off the coast of Brazil.
Earlier this season the FlexiClean was mobilised for a four-week campaign covering many different inspection and intervention tasks at Alvheim on the NCS.
"FlexiClean was found to be very effective for FPSO hull cleaning and was also the cleaning tool of choice for most of the inspection tasks during this years offshore campaign."
-Tim Haycock, DETNOR Alvheim

For the 2015 season we have re-designed the FlexiTRIM inspection tool.
The new light-weight version of the tool has improved performance and handling and still gives real-time 360° video inspection data and live diameter measurement.
This week Edland Rørbøying (ERB) completed fabrication of our renewed FlexiTRIM body.
ERB's competance in metal-work and willingness to work organically with us has made this project possible in the short time-frame available.
For more information regarding Edland Rørbøying see: www.erb.no
The MKII version will be mobilised for it's first job in June this year.
