State-of-the-Art Test Tank Now Available

Seanic’s facility in Katy, TX (near Houston, TX) now includes a full-service test tank to enable clients to test their products in a controlled environment in a cost-effective manner. Seanic’s tank is 50 ft (15m) square, 30 ft (9m) deep which is large enough to wet-test a full size subsea tree and work class ROV, with access from all sides of the tree. The tank is reinforced with 3 ft (0.9m) thick concrete on its base which allows for heavy items of up to 2000lbs/sq ft (9765 kg/sq m) to be tested.

Seanic also offers the use of an on-site FMC Technologies Schilling HD work-class ROV, through a collaboration with Canyon Offshore, for testing systems. A 10-ton overhead gantry crane provides lift capabilities to move product into the tank. During testing, clients can witness operations in multiple ways: since the pool is in-ground, it is possible to stand anywhere around the edge of the pool, or watch over the pilot’s shoulder in the ROV shack.

Seanic also provides the ability to broadcast HD video to 3 x 70” screens situated in a conference room, or to 2 x 70” screens which are situated in a private client conference room with an adjoining office. This allows monitoring of operations in air-conditioned comfort with full communications to the operations managers conducting the testing outside.

Seanic’s support capabilities extend to providing its range of tooling, if required, to enhance testing, as well as being able to provide welding and fabrication services if maintenance or fast-turnaround manufacture is required.
