On 9 October 2008 ALD was installed on a Seaeye Coguar ROV for inspecting a well head in the Adriatic Sea. The well head had already been inspected visually without results. In less then one hour ALD detected a leak signal and pinpointed the leak at the back of the control POD. The leak could then be confirmed visually.
The sensitivity of ALD allowed it to detect a leak which was hidden by the structure, which was then not visible during the visual survey.
