The International Marine Contractors Association’s (IMCA) has published ‘Guidelines for the Shared Use of Sensors for ROV and Survey Purposes’ (IMCA S 025 / R 022), which is available on the Association’s website.

The document provides technical guidance and an overview of some of the factors to consider when sharing ROV-mounted positioning, surveying and imaging sensors that may be used for more than one specific purpose.

While the sharing of sensors may be desirable to improve efficiency, and reduce costs, there are certain technical factors that need to be managed in order to maintain the quality of data.

Nick Hough, IMCA’s Technical Advisor – Offshore Survey, said: “Provided a risk assessment is undertaken, and measures are in place to mitigate them, the shared use of sensors for ROV positioning and for surveying applications need not present any operational issues and can offer a cost saving.”
