More ROVs for ROVOPVessel & ROV News // May 12, 2014
Rapidly growing subsea specialist ROVOP†is set to take delivery of five new remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), representing an investment of £17 million.
The ROVs include two UHD-IIIís, which are†heavy-duty work-class vehicles,†as well as three HD work-class systems. All of the ROVs are being supplied by†FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics in Davis, California, with the first of the HDs being delivered to ROVOP in Aberdeen in May.
Both of the UHD-III systems are to be deployed on†Ceona Amazon.†The ROVs will include Ennsub-designed ultra-deepwater launch and recovery systems (LARS) which will be fully integrated into the vessel and will enable operations in harsh environment conditions through the use of active heave compensation and heavy-weather deployment capabilities.
ROVOPís latest investment in its ROV fleet comes less than three months after the independent company, which is dedicated to providing ROV services and equipment to the subsea sector, took delivery of four new hydraulic work-class systems.
