STEMM-CCS CO2 Injection Skid Successfully Deployed

Cellula Robotics Ltd. is pleased to announce the deployment of the CO2 Injection Skid for the National Oceanography Centre (NOC)’s STEMM-CCS program in the North Sea Goldeneye field. Cellula team members provided offshore support during the operation.  During the deployment, a 7m long curved pipe was successfully inserted into the seabed. Click here for further updates on the deployment.

The project leveraged Cellula’s experience with seafloor geotechnical drills and remotely operated subsea equipment to provide a bespoke solution to NOC. Cellula has a track record of rapidly developing complex hydraulic subsea robotic systems that have all been completed under the control and oversight of our ISO 9001:2015 certificated Quality Management System.

STEMM-CCS is an ambitious multi-disciplinary project that will deliver new approaches, methodologies and tools for the safe operation of offshore carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) sites. CCS is a powerful mitigation strategy for addressing the increasing levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. The storage of CO2 in underground reservoirs, for example in depleted oil and gas fields or aquifers, is a demonstrated technology on land and - to a more limited extent - in marine systems. STEMM-CCS will develop approaches to help ensure we select appropriate marine storage sites and can monitor them effectively, thus further increasing confidence in CCS as a viable option for reducing atmospheric CO2.

Cellula Awarded Contract for CRD100 HD Camera Upgrade

Cellula has been awarded a contract from Fukada Salvage & Marine Works Co., Ltd. to design and build a High Definition (HD) Camera Upgrade for the CRD100 Seafloor Drill delivered in 2014, known as Unicorn-1. The upgrade includes a new HD camera, pan/tilt unit, multiple lights, a control canister and a deployable camera mount. The HD camera upgrade will provide improved imaging for landing and borehole monitoring during drilling.

The upgrade package will be delivered in August 2019 and installed on Unicorn-1 by Cellula engineers in Japan ahead of a multi-month drilling campaign.

Factory Testing Completed for STEMM-CCS CO2 Injection Skid

Cellula Robotics Ltd. has successfully completed factory acceptance testing for the CO2 Injection Skid for the National Oceanography Centre (NOC)’s STEMM-CCS program.

The skid is designed to install and leave a 7m long curved pipe in the seafloor via a diffuser to enable the controlled release of CO2. Click here for an animation of the Skid’s function. It will be used to test the effectiveness of technologies and techniques by STEMM-CCS partners for the detection and quantification of CO2. In May 2019, Cellula will be providing offshore support in the North Sea during the deployment process as part of the STEMM-CCS project.
