K-ZON: A remote inspection, laser and UT mapping solution. Providing the highest quality quantitative structural data for the management of caisson integrity.
Savante pioneered the development of high-accuracy underwater 3D laser measurement. Providing rich, full-colour 3D models of both seam and circumferential welds, our technology goes beyond simple defect sizing and permits the direct 3D comparison of weld and defect condition from inspection to inspection. Rates of deterioration can be directly measured through comparisons of subsequent 3D datasets.
Dual lasers scan the weld simultaneously from both sides; permitting enhanced detection of preferential root weld corrosion issues.
K-ZON is highly flexible. Variable length sponsons permit centralised use in a variety of caissons. A network enabled node delivers data from any NDT sensor technology.
Our experienced design team have the capabilities and experience to overcome challenging inspection problems.
K-ZON can be mobilised rapidly from our Aberdeen base at short notice; perfect for quick turnarounds and taking opportunities where they arise.
Minimal cross-section profile is critical to operations in high seas or navigation of obstructions such as pump retaining bars
All systems controlled using a robust, easy to use interface
K-ZON was designed to be lowered using any encumbent rope access team with minimal fuss.
