    Technip gets more horsepower

    Vessel & ROV News // July 23, 2004
    Perry Slingsby Systems reports that it has, or is about to, deliver additional work-class ROV systems and tooling to Technip's Remote Systems Unit. The ultra-deepwater ROV and tooling systems in question are intended to further boost Technip's remote intervention capability, and include:

    * 2,500m-rated Triton XL40 and Triton XL43 ROVs with associated tether management systems and topside control consoles to be installed on board CSO Sunrise, operating on a long-term charter to Petrobras in Brazil; these two new systems are part of a programme to upgrade the existing Triton XLs, which have been in service on CSO Sunrise for the last seven years

    * a 2,500m-rated Triton XL41 ROV which will be used to support Technip's global operations, and will be deployed initially on the Dalia projects shallow water trials in Tarragona, Spain

    * a 2,500m-rated Triton XL42 WB (wide bodied) ROV customised to suit the heave-compensated moonpool operations on CSO Constructor which, like CSO Sunrise, will have a matched pair of 100HP Triton XLs.

    In addition to these high specification ROV systems, Perry Slingsby Systems is also heavily involved in providing a suite of ROV tooling and customized ROV skids to Technip's Remote Systems Unit. The tooling and skids, which are fully integrated with theROV systems, range from hydraulic cutters, hot stabs and intelligent torque tools through to customised skids for fluid injection, pigging and testing, flying lead orientation, suction anchor installation and pipeline connection systems.
