Offshore and Subsea

When it comes to inspection and cleaning of marine assets and infrastructure like offshore platforms, submarine pipelines, risers, caissons, well systems, pilings and retaining walls, Eddyfi Technologies rises to the most complex offshore industry challenges.


The inspection of subsea infrastructure often involves rope access technicians and specialty trained divers to collect information on integrity and potential issues found. In these circumstances, given all the costs and energy required, collecting the most accurate and reliable data is paramount. Hence, Eddyfi Technologies offers the most advanced Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) solutions –often tailored to the needs of the industry– with ACFM® being the most prominent example. In some cases, an alternative to rope access work or diver-deployed inspection is available. Technological advances are demonstrating how using an amphibious robot can save time, money, and most importantly, human risk factors in hostile marine environments.

Our advanced NDT technology offers cost-effective solutions for subsea inspection, maintenance and even robotic cleaning — without putting inspectors in a potentially hazardous environment. Our goal is to provide tools that enable access to areas that are too dangerous or remote for direct human intervention. Eddyfi Technologies’ adaptable NDT tools can be tailored to specific requirements and data requests. Whether assessing caissons and risers for manufacturing and in-service defects or employing ultrasonic testing to map corrosion coverage of offloading systems and floating platforms, our solutions can provide immediate feedback.

Typical applications include, but are not limited to:

  • Subsea welds
  • Jackets and subsea structures
  • Subsea pipelines
  • Splash zone structures
  • Through-coating NDT
  • Offshore piles and topside jetty lines
  • Surface profiling and pit, crack and damage sizing
  • Wall thickness measurement and quantifying metal loss
  • Drill riser assessment
  • Caisson evaluation
