ROV manufacturer unveils new skid design

Equipment & Technology - September 21, 2012

A new concept in skid design from Saab Seaeye adds a powerful tooling capability to its Cougar XTi ROV.

It means that for Christmas tree installation and other work tasks a small electric ROV can be deployed in the support role rather than a large hydraulic work class vehicle.

The innovation behind the work skids concept is an electro-hydraulic modular power package that allows a ‘mix and match’ combination of powerful tooling to be used.

Skids fitted with an ensemble of work-scope tooling such as a class 1-4 torque tool, 350bar sea water hot stab, manipulators, and high-pressure water jet and rotary brush for complimentary cleaning work, now make it possible for a small ROV to undertake the tasks normally performed by an hydraulic work-class vehicle – but at a lower cost, said Saab Seaeye.
