These teams are made up of recognized experts on their field of competence: commanders and naval officers, engineers, oceanographers, survey specialists, ROV and submarine pilots, sonar operators and bathymetry experts.

The Comex intervenes during missions at sea:

›› the development and validation of innovative submersible equipment for the offshore industry

›› mapping up to 600 m depth of the submarine canyon heads of the French Mediterranean (mainland and Corsica) and the Marquesas archipelago (in the Pacific)

›› the maintenance of submerged polygons at great and very great depth

›› inspection of underwater sites up to 2,500 m depth

›› search, retrieval and rescue of flight recorders during sea crashes or in the implementation of complex equipment on the sea floor.

Total management of the missions is ensured by:

needs analysis, engineering assistance, implementation of procedures, design and manufacture of specific tools, implementation of its high-level exploration equipment, expertise, detailed mission report.

Risk management is optimized by:

Redundancy of people and equipment, with absolute respect for safety and the marine environment. The transmission of the know-how inherent to the Comex corporate culture and the training programs guarantee the constant update of the teams’ skills.

EXPERTISE AT THE SEA AND IN DEPTH

EXPERTISE AT THE SEA AND IN DEPTH

On the basis of its incomparable experience of high pressures and extreme environments, Comex regularly intervenes on expertise and consulting missions adapted to the technical and economic constraints of its clients and partners, on land and at sea.

Our engineers have the know-how and qualifications to conduct complex audits on hyperbaric and hypobaric equipment and facilities. They are also experts in feasibility studies, drafting technical specifications and specifications, and bringing systems and equipment into compliance with harmonized standards and European directives.

 In the field of great depths, they have already demonstrated many times their perfect mastery of the design, construction and deployment of tools and special equipment on the bottom or in the water column. They have also successfully intervened on numerous accidents with complex problems, such as the detection and the deep-sea detection of shipwrecked vessels, aircraft, wrecks or flight recorders of aircraft that have disappeared at sea. Their expertise is equally valuable in the identification and management of underwater pollution of all kinds.

SURVEX

Transportable Hybrid Cabin, with aluminum hull, specially designed and equipped for coastal or port survey missions.

MINIBEX

A cargo ship that can be transported by cargo for transoceanic transits, Minibex can provide exploration missions and any type of underwater work on the continental shelf. It presents in particular an exceptional ratio between mobility, reduced crew and tools available on board.

JANUS II

This catamaran, built entirely of aluminum, offers a wide platform of work adapted to a multitude of marine and underwater missions. Its great autonomy, 20 days without refueling, and its low operational costs, allow complex offshore operations in reasonable budgets.

ADVANCED EQUIPMENT FOR MISSIONS AT SEA

ADVANCED EQUIPMENT FOR MISSIONS AT SEA

 The very wide variety and specificity of the marine and submarine missions conducted by Comex are based not only on the performance of its submersible equipment, but also on a very wide range of state-of-the-art equipment available on demand on its oceanographic vessels. , such as :

 

›› dynamic positioning with redundancy of navigation sensors

›› Sonardyne, Ore and Kongsberg acoustic positioning

›› panoramic sonar

›› DSLR camera + flashes

›› lateral sonars Klein 595, Klein 2000 and Klein 3000

›› multibeam Reson 8101

›› blaster

›› magnetometer

›› TEI acquisition stations.

 La très grande variété et la spécificité des missions marines et sous-marines conduites par la Comex, reposent non seulement sur les performances de ses engins submersibles, mais aussi sur une panoplie très étendue d’équipements de pointe disponibles à la demande sur ses navires océanographiques, tels que :

 

›› positionnement dynamique avec redondance des capteurs de navigation

›› positionnements acoustiques Sonardyne, Ore et Kongsberg

›› sonar panoramique

›› appareil photo reflex numérique + flashs

›› sonars latéraux Klein 595, Klein 2000 et Klein 3000

›› multifaisceaux Reson 8101

›› blaster

›› magnétomètre

›› stations d’acquisition TEI.

TELE-OPERATED SUBMARINE ROBOTS

TELE-OPERATED SUBMARINE ROBOTS

 Comex has underwater wire-guided robots (or ROVs), deployable from its oceanographic vessels and able to descend to a depth of 2500 m. They are implemented by specially trained operators who provide maintenance onshore and during missions. They allow to:

›› see under the surface of the water

›› handle tools in the water column or on the bottom

›› study the fauna, flora and the ocean floor

›› take samples in water or sediments

›› produce still or moving images

›› model in 3D the underwater world
