Seismic Sensor Installation
Underwater seismic sensor installation.
RS Divers were contracted by a leading seismology company, Gurlap Systems, to aid in the installation of seismic sensors below seabed level, off the south of the Isle of Wight.
Over a 6-week period and on a weekly rotation of sites, using air tools RS Divers dug, lifted and cut through sand, shingle and clay to create a series of metre deep holes in the seabed. The sensors were then put into the holes before back-filling. We then returned 2 weeks later to recover the sensors.
The work conducted by RS Divers supported successful delivery of the process of gaining seismic recordings, which has led to this process being rolled-out across the North Sea.
