Swedish company MMT and Norway's Reach Subsea par- ticipated with underwater technology and survey and ROV vessels (MV Stril Explorer, 76 m; and MV Havila Subsea, 98 m). A total search distance of approximately 2,600 km has been mapped, and 50 sediment cores were collected for analysis. More than 60 new shipwrecks have been found, inspected and documented with work-class ROVs (Kystde- sign Supporter and Shilling). Parts on Demand Extends to International Service Gardner Denver Petroleum & Industrial Pumps (P&IP) launched a parts-on-demand program in the Middle East. The program facilitates management of replacement inven- tory at customers' regional locations, facilities or well sites and offers a large inventory in after-market parts and con- sumables. P&IP designs petroleum and industrial pumps for the global oil and gas industry, with repair shops and ser- vice facilities serving the drilling, well-servicing and frack- ing pumps market with aftermarket support, including high- performance consumables, field service and repair and exchange programs as well as training, technical support and partnership and supply agreements. Argentinian Research Ship Outfitted With Deep Hydroacoustic Systems Integration Kongsberg successfully completed the installation of a suite of Simrad marine ecosystem assessment technology aboard Victor Angelescu, the Argentinian National Insti- tute of Fisheries Research and Development's (INIDEP) new oceanographic and fishing research vessel. Built at Span- ish yard Astilleros Armon Vigo SA, the new 52-m research ship is a silent vessel that, combined with the Simrad marine ecosystem package, will enable highly accurate survey re- sults for Argentinian scientists. Acoustic Technology Used in Search For Helicopter Flight Recorder A mission to search for the wreckage of an Irish Coast Guard helicopter that crashed in the Atlantic earlier this year was assisted by Sonardyne underwater locating equipment including the Scout USBL (ultrashort baseline) and ROV Homer acoustic tracking and relocation systems owned by the Irish Marine Institute. The mission detected emergency signals from the aircraft's flight data recorder, and, using an ROV, search teams pinpointed the exact location of the wreck lying in 40 m of water. New Rule to Accommodate Floating Storage and Regasification Units Bureau Veritas published a new Rule, NR645, for the classification of floating storage and regasification units (FS- RUs) that enables comprehensive classification of all types of floating storage and regasification assets. The new rules detail the requirements for technical and operational issues of FSRUs and provide two distinct class notations: Lique- fied Gas Carrier FSRU notation, which enables gas trading in addition to floating storage and regasification terminal operations, and FSRU notation, for units dedicated to pure gas storage and regasification terminal operations and not intending to trade.
