Final Report - CHAINTEST (Autonomous Robotic System for the Inspection of Mooring Chains that Thether Offshore Oil Gas Structures to the Ocean Floor)

Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the CHAINTEST project. The project, according to its title, aimed to develop an 'autonomous robotic system for the inspection of mooring chains that tether offshore oil and gas structures to the ocean floor'. The objective of CHAINTEST was to overcome the limitations of current inspection working practices on chains used in the mooring systems for floating offshore oil and gas production platforms obviating the need for human inspectors, and thereby increasing inspection reliability.

The report briefly discusses the motivation and the participants behind the project, the work performed and the systems developed along with some necessary changes on course. It also discloses dissemination activities information and states that further key exploitable deliverables will be released in the period following completion of the project, upon the consent of the participants.
