DELIVERING FAST AND RELIABLE REMOTE COMMUNICATIONS FOR PRECISE SUBSEA MONITORING APPLICATIONS WITH LUMA WIRELESS OPTICAL COMMUNICATION NODES.

Many subsea construction operations require real time data access to enable informed decision to be made during the installation phase. The reliability of data communications with monitoring systems is critical to this type of operation. Ashtead Technology successfully integrated Hydromea’s LUMA optical nodes with its AMS+ (autonomous monitoring system) and DMS (deflection monitoring system), which are systems regularly used to…

PROVIDING CRITICAL INFORMATION ABOUT STATE OF INSTRUMENTS IN REAL TIME AT OVER 4’000 METERS DEPTH WITH LUMA WIRELESS OPTICAL COMMUNICATION NODES.

Germany’s oceanographic research institutes successfully used Hydromea’s LUMA 250LP wireless nodes in depths down to over 4000m. The scientists of the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI)/Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology (MPI) on board the research vessel Sonne were examining the possible environmental impact of deep sea mining of polymetallic nodules in the Clarion Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCZ) in the Eastern…

REDUCING RISK AND IMPROVING SPEED IN A SUBSEA MANIFOLD INSTALLATION WITH LUMA WIRELESS OPTICAL NODES

Hydromea’s LUMA, a wireless high-speed underwater communication system, was successfully deployed by a leading subsea operator, during a subsea manifold installation project in the North Sea in November 2018.  LUMA was integrated with Ashtead Technology’s AMS+ (Autonomous Monitoring System) to deliver fast and reliable remote communication of heading, pitch, roll and other essential data in real time via a work…
