    New ROV selling well for shallow water applications

    Vessel & ROV News // March 23, 2011

    Fitted with ten powerful thrusters and with the capacity to carry a seven-function position feedback manipulator and five-function rate manipulator, the new Saab Seaeye Panther XT Plus is reported to be selling well, four systems sold for delivery this year.

    Saab Seaeye says operators value the ability of the new Panther to hold steady in currents in shallow water, making it ideal for a range of work and survey tasks.

    Although rated to 1,500m water depth, the application of the Panther XT Plus in high current shallow water locations is creating the main interest from customers who wish to have more capability in these more difficult areas of operation.
