Sonardyne Asia Pte Ltd. to launch ALDS (Automatic Leak Detection Sonar} at upcoming OSEA Singapore expo.

ALDS has been designed to continuously and automatically detect and localise oil and gas leaks below 1 barrel per day in excess of 500 metres whilst eliminating transient acoustic targets that could trigger false alarms.

Sonardyne’s ALDS is designed to continuously monitor one billion cubic feet of water for leaks around subsea oil and gas assets. Capable of 360° coverage, it can detect leaks at rates of less than one barrel per day at ranges in excess of 500 metres in deep water.

The company will also be showing its Autonomous Monitoring Transponders (AMTs) and GyroUSBL at the expo. AMTs are designed for long endurance data collection whilst Lodestar GyroUSBL requires only an initial calibration, enabling significant savings in vessel time and operational costs.
