A remote subsea cleaning machine has claimed the top prize at the Australian Gas Innovation Awards, as part of the recent Australian Gas Technology Conference & Exhibition (AGT) in Perth.

Taking out the commercial category of the gas industry awards program, the Remote Subsea Cleaning Machine by Essential Project Solutions is a low-cost and time efficient alternative to current chain cleaning methods.

The machine encapsulates and then crawls along large diameter mooring chains and, using ultra high-pressure water, removes all marine growth to allow close visual inspection of each link for possible ongoing deterioration.

David Hann accepted the award for Essential Project Solutions, who beat out stiff competition to claim the honour. Other finalists in the commercial category included Hey Mate Global, Wood Group Integrity Management, Stochastic Simulation and Three D Design.

Launched to recognise the innovators driving Australia’s fast growing, $200 billion liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry, the Australian Gas Innovation Awards were presented at the AGT Official Dinner at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

“The awards are designed to both raise awareness of innovation as a driver of economic and technological change and to maximise the commercialisation of ideas by building links between industry, research and learning,” said Bill Hare, AGT Event Director.

“Australia is at the forefront of innovation in the LNG industry and the finalists honoured last night represent just a sample of the extraordinary range of innovative products and technologies coming onto the market.”
