The two ROV,s Sea eye “Surveyor Plus” are conducting a visual survey in the southern north sea gas field  They are taking cathode readings and recording on tape everything they see, paying particular attention to anything they see as unusual, an “abnormality” Tidal scour, damaged members, debris either on the sea bed or resting on the structure members. The ship on this type of project is dedicated to collating of data. There are no divers involved at all. Note the extrordinary number of propellors on this type of vessel. The seven thrusters are essencial just to keep the vessel in a fixed position, resisting strong tidal currents and rough sea conditions.
