Rapidly growing international energy services company Proserv officially launched a global research and development (R&D) hub in Norway to design innovative subsea controls and communications technologies.

This new group strengthens Proserv’s evolving international infrastructure in support of its subsea production systems business which includes facilities in the U.K. providing subsea systems test and assembly in Aberdeenshire and subsea controls systems design and manufacture in Great Yarmouth.

This state-of-the-art R&D facility at Trondheim, Norway, represents a significant investment for the company and features an advanced electronics workshop spanning 500 square meters, a technology showroom for demonstrations and 1,100 square meters of office space for 50 new offices.

Proserv is recognized for its innovations. The Trondheim team developed Proserv’s Seahawk in-situ video surveillance system, a ground-breaking technology for environmental monitoring including retrofit on brownfield subsea installations.

The technology can be installed on a subsea Christmas tree or manifold to provide visual monitoring of potential leakages. High-quality video is taken by the camera which uses image analysis to detect gas leakages. It can provide an automatic warning through the customer’s SCADA system and alerts the operations team to use the Seahawk™ to focus in on the area of concern without the need of subsea intervention. The Seahawk™ was developed as a permanent alternative to the costly and time-consuming method of deploying remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) subsea for the monitoring of assets offshore.
