AALD – Active Acoustic Leak Detection Sensor System
As announced in the ONS 2014 | METAS Press brief, August the 25th. we are now introducing our new AALD, Active Acoustic Oil and Gas Leak Detection Sensor System, in close cooperation with FMC Technologies.
AALD Subsea Installataion
The system is designed for subsea installation, detecting even small amounts of oil and gas in ranges up to 700+ meters. Various alternative hardware applications and sensors are available with horizontal scanning selectable from 0 to 360 degrees and 0 to 90 degrees vertical for monitoring one or more potential locations in same area to fulfill customers need at different subsea installations.
Active Acoustic Leak Detection Software
For analyzing detected leakages, a software system are under development. A beta version already tested with very good results giving alarm on detected leakages and its location as well as trend indications for even small leakages. The complete system, hardware and software, are now in the offshore qualification phase and the commercial version scheduled to be available early next year.
