Technip and 3D at Depth Form Alliance to Expand and Commercialize LiDAR Technology in Gulf of Mexico
Press Releases / 14/10/2015
Boulder, Co. — October 14, 2015 — 3D at Depth, a global technology provider of advanced subsea LiDAR systems and solutions, and Technip USA, Inc., an affiliate of Technip SA of France, announced today that they have signed a joint development agreement (JDA) to expand and commercialize the LiDAR technology for subsea metrology, field survey and IRM applications. Commonly referred to as laser scanning, LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a technology for collecting precise 3D models of subsea structures and seabed topography. It addresses the challenges of subsea data collection and imaging in deep waters for metrology survey programs and as-built field configurations.
This partnership cements the existing strong relationship between Technip and 3D at Depth. It will bring additional value to 3D at Depth’s Subsea LiDAR technology and develop new applications and best practices for the mutual benefit of both companies.
“After several years of continued joint successes using subsea LiDAR, we are excited to announce a formal partnership with Technip USA through a joint development agreement,” said Brett Nickerson, Co-Founder and Director of Software Engineering. “Such an agreement will focus on new subsea LiDAR applications including the marriage of LiDAR and moving platforms. We believe this joint effort will provide solutions for many existing and future subsea applications. 3D at Depth is pleased to be a technology & solutions provider to Technip and looks forward to expanding the partnership with Technip moving forward.”
Raymond Semple, COO Subsea of Technip USA, Inc. added: “We are very pleased to cement our relationship with 3D at Depth and take their Subsea LiDAR technology further. This technology alliance also illustrates our continuous focus to develop technology and cost efficient solutions to optimize deep water Subsea projects”.
