Suction pile manifold installation monitoring

Ashtead was approached by a leading engineering and construction firm to support with the safe and efficient installation of subsea structures, without incurring stress on critical weldments.


We utilised our in-house developed real-time monitoring solution, which provides critical data on the shape of the structure and the relative attitude of the suction piles. With positioning and orientation data also incorporated, this fully integrated one-pass installation-monitoring package reduced vessel time and technical risk.

Benefits delivered

With our Deflection Monitoring System (DMS), we delivered a much higher level of visibility over the integrity of the structure through installation monitoring. In addition to the real-time offshore benefit, valuable data was gathered for post installation analysis of the structure response to further refine models and assumptions going forward.
