Tracerco, part of our Process Technologies Division, has been recognised for its breakthrough technology for the inspection of subsea pipelines

Tracerco's new subsea scanner was recognised by the Pipeline Industries Guild Awards as the most significant contribution to subsea pipeline technology in 2014

Tracerco was awarded the top accolade in the Subsea Technology category at the prestigious Pipeline Industries Guild Awards 2014.

The award was in recognition of Tracerco's new subsea scanner, called Discovery TM. The device gives oil and gas operators, for the first time, the opportunity to scan any subsea pipeline from the outside. They can then get an accurate picture of the condition of the pipe and its contents, with no need to remove the protective coating, and with no interruption to production.

"Our ethos is to strive for technical excellence in order to add value to our customers"Lee Robins, Head of Subsea Technology at Tracerco, said: “This award is great testament to the outstanding subsea innovation of our whole research and development team

“Our ethos is to strive for technical excellence in order to add value to our customers. Discovery TM is an excellent example of how our research and development team were able to work with our customers to create a technology solution that overcomes their most significant challenges."

Tracerco's world first technology was created in cooperation with Statoil. This new development is the latest in a history of cooperation between Tracerco and its customers.

The award is Tracerco's second industry award in six months having already picked up an Institute of Physics Award for its breakthrough LevelFinderPlus technology.
