Seafloor Drilling and Sampling Systems

Williamson & Associates has been developing seafloor drilling and sampling systems since 1991. Our remotely operated systems feature flexible deployment platforms that can be mobilized on a wide range of vessel profiles.

Remotely Operated Core Sampler

Our latest drill system, the Remotely Operated Core Sampler (ROCS), is designed to be mounted on a work class ROV, making this tool one of the most flexible and economic ways of obtaining deep sea core samples.

Please contact us for further specifications.

Wireline and Conventional Seafloor Drilling Systems

Our offerings include wireline and conventional drilling systems with complete telemetry, hydraulic and electrical power solutions.

These systems are proven over years of operation in the harshest working conditions.
