Kreuz Subsea boosts fleet with new ROVVessel & ROV News // August 22, 2011
After winning a five year contract with Shell in Brunei, Singapore based Kreuz Subsea has added a Saab Seaeye Cougar XT to its ROV fleet.
"We needed a trusted brand," said operations manager, Robert Black, "and the Cougar XT has an outstanding power to weight ratio."
The Cougar XT configuration chosen by Kreuz in conjunction with Oceanvision, Saab Seaeye’s Singapore-based distributor and Far East service hub, makes the ROV a versatile light work vehicle suitable for a wide range of operations.
It includes a Tritech Super SeaKing Sonar; a Kongsberg high-definition low light camera and a colour zoom camera; a dual five function heavy duty manipulator; and a CP proximity probe and contact probe.
A tether management system is also supplied with a stainless steel cage and 200m of tether, along with its own Seaeye mini wide-angle B&W camera.
An A-frame launch and recovery system is included with 1,600m of armoured umbilical.
The whole system comes with its own purpose-built 20 foot air-conditioned control and workshop container.
