ICON Technologies provided an integrated monitoring and control system for a unique Subsea Cold Cutting System (SCC) developed by Jetcut Offshore Technology for environmentally-friendly removal of old wellheads from the sea floor.
The PC-based system acquired real-time acoustic signatures from microphones mounted near the cutting point, to provide feedback to the surface operator on the progress of the cut. The system also monitored a range of related low-speed I/O, and provided supervisory control of the PLC that managed the high-pressure hydraulics for the cold cutting system.
