ECA Group solutions to be presented on EUROMARITIME 2020
At the occasion of Euromaritime 2020, ECA Group will be presenting its cutting edge solutions dedicated to Maritime activities:
Subsea and offshore robotics
Developing effective unmanned and remotely operated systems of robots is at the heart of ECA Group's R&D efforts. For more than 60 years ECA Group aims at providing optimized robotic systems to successfully perform missions for Oil & Gas, Subsea purposes such as: seabed surveys, asset / critical infrastructure inspection and cleaning.
ECA Group as an expert of underwater robotics, offers a comprehensive operational system integrating a wide range of drones systems including:
- Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) and LARS (Launch and Recovery Systems) allowing to automatically deploy a wide range of drones
- Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)
- Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and associated tooling or Electric manipulator arms
These range of solutions are particularly suited for both shallow and deep water pipeline inspection up to 3 000m water depth and for the control of offshore laying operations of cable, risers, pipeline and flexible in Oil & Gas Industry. Compliant with the standards in place in the industry, these solutions offer a great opportunity to reduce expenditures costs while enhancing data quality and post processing data management tools
These robust and highly versatile systems are also employed for Offshore Protection and in particular for :
- Platform and Hull inspections
- deep and shallow water survey
- wreck inspection
All ECA Group systems are supported by the appropriate Simulation applications.
These robotic solutions are supported by high-performance unmanned based tools dedicated for seafloor mapping using bathymetric, side scan and subbottom systems to make the most of the data collected throughout the missions.
ECA Group AUV solutions
ECA Group supplies a wide range of AUV systems, from man portable to mid-size AUV, these cutting-edge unmanned vehicles comes with a user-frienly mission preparation and post analysis software. Missions can be prepared before the mission in order to be quickly deployed on field. The AUV performs its mission in a complete autonomy allowing operators to focuses on other important tasks and prepare post-mission treatment.
ECA Group ROV solutions and tooling
ECA Group has a long expertise in the design and manufacture of ROV solutions. From compact observation ROV to crawlers to heavy duty work-class, ECA Group offer a wide range of solutions to help you perform missions underwater, up to 2000 m deep. Easily configured and modular, payloads can easily be equipped thanks to its unique architecture, enabling to fit a wide range of tools and sensors ( such as high quality viewing system, sonars or Electric Manipulator Arms ). User-friendly, a single and ergonomic control unit allows the control of both ROV and additional equipment.
Coastal and harbor surveillance / protection
ECA Group is also actively engaged in the inspection of harbors and coastals areas by designing and developing efficient unmanned robotic solutions at sea to survey critical infrastructures and or secure major events. ECA Group robots can be easily and quickly deployed. Whether indivigually or teaming ECA Group can be controlled through a single software interface capable of running simultaneously AUVs, USVs and UAVs that can be further complemented by ROVs for a combination of tasks.
These systems are particularly efficient to:
- inspect immersed structures
- recover or identify objects
- neutralize underwater threats making it an optimum solution to secure coastal areas.
ECA Group robotic solutions at sea have recently been certified for the security of major sporting event by the French Strategic Planning Committee (CSF).
Discover a unique drone management system
ECA Group various autonomous air and naval robots, can be supervised through a single command and control center. It can be seamlessly connected to the other surveillance systems,or integrated onto a global security system. Drones can be equipped with electro-optical sensors capable of detecting suspicious individuals or vehicles. Adaptable to the circumstances, the drones can carry out missions such as detection, threat characterization or even neutralization if the risk is confirmed.
Designed to work as team of robots it can complement traditional means by increasing their area of coverage, density and persistence. The ability of ECA Group’ solution to control all drones from a single platform allows to optimize the number of operators required.
Discover ROVINGBAT - the ideal solution for UWILD applications
UnderWater Inspections In lieu of Dry-docking (UWILD) are now prevailing in context of the Oil & Gas business, since international standards compliance requires to ensure the structural and operational integrity of any marine asset throughout its operational life span.
ECA Group offers the ROVING BAT, a hybrid Remotely Operated Vehicle combining a traditional ROV with a crawler, providing a very strong thrust, allowing to perform all UWILD tasks with one robot: Inspection, NDT measurements and Cleaning.
Around the vessels / Ships
For Maritime activities, ECA Group is engaged in the shipyard industry, engineering and naval architecture by designing and providing vessels systems and equipment, as well as magnetic ranging and treatment facilities for ships. ECA Group also develops advanced electric propulsion systems, steering and engine control.
In this field, the Group will demonstrate its solutions for :
- Accoustic & Magnetic ranging systems : These include magnetic signature reduction systems and multi-influence ranges. Discover STERNA®, a portable UAV-based magnetic ranging system for protection of vessels.
- Energy : Learn more about Silicon Carbide (SiC) cutting-edge technology thanks to which ECA Group is able to provides static converters with enhanced performances.
- Propulsion systems : ECA Group provides electric propulsion motors for civilian vessels. ECA Group is specialized in integrating electrical and/or hybrid propulsion systems.
Mauric, a naval architecture bureau specializing in the design of different types of naval vessels for defence, security, Oil & Gas, fishing, passenger transportation.
At the occasion of Euromaritime, Mauric will present its Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Design capabilities. The smart ships integration of ECA Group naval drones will be introduced.
