Woods Hole's Profiling System for Helix Energy

January 6, 2015

 

Woods Hole Group on November 14, 2014 was awarded a contract to design and install a current profiling system for a subsidiary of Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc.

The current profiling system will consist of dual (upward and downward looking) Acoustic Doppler Current Profiling instrumentation (ADCP), a launch and recovery system (LARS), onboard real time displays of the water column speed and direction to 1000 M below the Semi-submersible vessel.

The system will be installed on the Semi-submersible well intervention vessel, ‘Q5000’ and is expected to become operational in the Gulf of Mexico during the summer of 2015. The Q5000 is a Helix Energy Solutions vessel. This will become the 6th Woods Hole Group current profiling system operating in the Gulf of Mexico for a major oil company.
