WFS wins two OTC awards for its subsea innovations

wfsWFS Technologies, a global subsea wireless and digitalisation specialist, has scored a double whammy after being revealed as the winners of two prestigious accolades by the organisers of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC)

WFS won the Small Business Spotlight on New Technology Award for both its Seatooth SmartClamp and its Subsea Cloud Computing Network innovations.

Moray Melhuish, commercial director at WFS, said, “Wireless, digital technology is recognised more than ever as crucial to helping the offshore energy industry minimise the cost of ownership while improving safety, reducing the risk of environmental incidents and driving down its carbon footprint.

“The OTC awards are therefore a huge testament to the team at WFS who, through their vision and tireless efforts, have developed disruptive technology that is having a such a positive impact on the industry round the globe.”

WFS’ innovative Seatooth SmartClamp is a smart, wireless Structural Monitoring System (SMS) for use on subsea structures. It incorporates the Seatooth wireless data processing and transmission platform offering short, medium and long-range hybrid communication options. As a result, the tool includes strain, vibration, pressure and temperature monitoring.

Seatooth technology enables the automation and digitalisation of subsea assets through its ability to communicate through steel, ground, sea water and the water-air boundary, and performs a major role in tackling the real-time monitoring of offshore assets and production both above and below surface.

The company’s Subsea Cloud Computing Network (SCCN) is a system-of-systems which enable the most advanced data techniques to be used to optimise subsea operations. As a result, the SCCN reduces both operating and asset integrity management costs as well as that of CAPEX and risk while also extending a field’s operating life and reducing its carbon footprint.
