Subsea Test Facilities in Australia

Subsea Testing and Research (STAR) Labs are offering two subsea locations, connected to shore by power and communication cables, for equipment and technology focused testing, monitoring, and research.

In the shallow continental shelves around the Australian coast, equipment service life is often severely reduced when compared to the design life. Typically, equipment is designed, manufactured and tested for colder environments, not accounting for some of the warm water effects often seen in Australia. STAR Labs offer in situ test facilities near Perth, Western Australia, at Rous Head, Fremantle and Garden Island.

The knowledge gained by testing equipment in a subsea environment will ensure better end user reliability, significantly reduce clients operating costs and provide a key differentiator for leading equipment manufacturers
