Debris
This shows a not untypical amount of rubbish found on the lower elevations of a busy platform in the north sea. Scaffolding temporarily installed on or below the spider deck of a platform can be whipped away during violent winter storms. This type of survey is very risky for the rov. In this instance the cruciform shaped piece of scaffolding above the rov was disturbed by the vehicles tether, and in rolling down the diagonal member wrapped the rov’s tether several times around it. This required some courageous flying by the rov pilot to extricate his vehicle .
