A Houston-based subsea tooling manufacturer has expanded into Aberdeen as part of its growth strategy after seeing rising demand for its products and solutions out with the US.
Seanic Ocean Systems builds products used by remote-operated vehicles (ROVs) to interface with subsea hardware.
The company sells and rents standardised industry products, develops custom engineered tooling solutions for unique and unforeseen problems, manages field services and operations, oversees IMR programmes, and offers storage and integration of customer products.
Customised subsea intervention solutions for the marine industry

- Class 17H 1-4 torque tool
- Class 17H 5, 6 and 7 adapter
- Flying lead orientation tool (FLOT)
- Subsea torque test jig
- Super grinder
- 10K / 15K multipurpose intensifier pump
- Well head brushing tool
- AX / VX removal / installation tool
- Hub cleaning tools
- Zero leak hot stabs
- Paddle valves
- Linear valve override (LVOT)
- Enclosed cavitation blaster (ECB)
- Flex joint cleaning tool (FJT)
Solutions for underwater operations
Cutting-edge engineered solutions offered range from subsea equipment structures and deployment frames to flex joint inspection and cleaning systems. Growing inspections, maintenance and repair opportunities continue to develop with the need to clean soft or sensitive materials.
Seanic’s enclosed cavitation blaster (ECB) is used for general purpose cleaning, strake and fairing cleaning, as well as underwater inspections in lieu of dry-docking (UWILD) inspections.
The ECB unit uses cavitation technology to gently yet effectively remove barnacles and marine growth from soft surfaces and structures such as vessel hulls, strakes, risers, fairings and moorings, thereby reducing weight and drag.
Unlike traditional 5,000psi or 10,000psi water blasters, Seanic’s ECB unit cleans subsea objects without damaging soft plastic or rubber surfaces.
Flex joint cleaning tools
Seanic’s flex joint cleaning tool thoroughly removes excessive marine growth from the elastomer on the underside of the flex joint, allowing for optimal inspection.
It is operated by a Seanic technician using a joystick and tooling computer with GUI interface inside the ROV control van. The unique deployment system allows it to be used on many industry-recognised work-class ROVs.
High-pressure water blasters for cleaning operations
Seanic manufactures and rents high-pressure water blasters for cleaning and subsea structures of debris and marine growth.
These are industry-standard, hydraulically driven pumps that can generate the force necessary for even the toughest cleaning jobs.
Flying lead orientation tools (FLOT)
The Seanic FLOT provides the operator with a durable design with greater versatility and less overall weight.
This unit can easily be custom-designed to fit any torque tool and provides the convenience of roll-up to 360°, giving clients the ability to dock flying leads in challenging conditions.
