Marine & Offshore Systems
The Marine & Offshore Systems Section performs systems design, analysis, fabrication and test programs emphasizing the technologies in the marine and offshore petroleum industries. Marine systems design/development capabilities include autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV); remote operated vehicles (ROV), pressure vessels for human occupancy (PVHO) and Deep Ocean pressure vessel and umbilical design and fabrication. Fabrication experience includes PVHO's, deck decompression chambers, submarine models and deep ocean pressure vessels. Fabrication codes met include PVHO, ABS, DNV, USCG, ASME (Section VIII, Divisions 1 & 2) and U.S. Navy. Testing services include pressure testing, large scale/full scale structural testing, functional/operational testing and burst/collapse/failure testing.
