Cavitation blasting 68 intake screens in six days at a drill ship, whilst working in eight-foot waves and 2.5 knot currents using the small Saab Seaeye Falcon, won a competitive advantage for Inquest Services in the Gulf of Mexico. Despite its diminutive one metre size the Falcon held steady and stable against the 3000psi force of the cavitation blaster, a feat achieved by the Falcon’s intelligent control system and its five powerful thrusters – a design concept from Saab Seaeye that has made it a worldwide success.
