Miros Group has secured a trio of three-year agreements with Subsea 7 to install its internet of things (IoT) dry-sensor WaveSystem.
As part of project requirements for the monitoring of wave and current to a water depth of 10m, WaveSystem will be installed on three of Subsea 7’s pipelay support vessels – Seven Waves, Seven Rio and Seven Sun – alongside access to Miros Cloud services delivering real-time sea state data. The award for Miros follows an agreement between Subsea 7 and Petrobras in Brazil for new long-term, day-rate vessel contracts.
Each contract comprises a three-year period plus a subsequent one-year option. The contracts are due to commence between Q1 and Q3 2022.
Andrew Wallace, Miros’ VP Offshore Solutions commented: “We are thrilled to expand our services further to Subsea 7 by equipping Miros WaveSystem to the Seven Waves, Seven Rio, and Seven Sun vessels.
“This is a testament to Miros’ expertise and reliability in delivering accurate wave measurements via our cloud-based graphical user interface (GUI) Miros.app. Providing Subsea 7 access to real-time wave and current data which can be shared across departments is an important function for both onshore and vessel-based personnel and key to ensure safe and efficient operations at all times.”
Filipe Salvio, Operations Manager at Subsea 7 added: “The cloud-enabled WaveSystem onboard our three pipelay support vessels allows us to deliver the best service to our customer independently of offshore weather conditions. This system provides us with accurate wave, current and speed through water data granting us to work safe, precise and highly effective at all times”.
