Feritech Geotechnical Survey 2 2Feritech Global has completed the design and build project of an auto-drop piston corer for Oceaneering, a provider of subsea robotics to the offshore energy industry.
A piston corer is a long, heavy tube plunged into the seafloor to extract samples of soft sediment. Analysis of these samples provides information for developers who want to build installations out at sea, such as wind turbines, oil and gas pipelines, or undersea cables.

Using software, the auto-drop piston corer can be programmed, lowered to pre-set sea depth, and then automatically released. Additionally, the Launch and Recovery System (LARS) and the winch can be operated remotely through a control panel integrated into a wearable pack. The upgraded LARS system also includes a new, strengthened barrier rail capable of withstanding pressures of up to 2 tons.
