    New sixth edition of ROVs of the World published

    Publications // February 6, 2004
    The new edition of Remotely Operated Vehicles of the World, claimed to be the only reference book of its type on the subject, has been published by Oilfield Publications Limited (OPL).

    The new sixth (6th) edition, which says OPL, is the most comprehensive yet, provides full details on the world's ROV fleet, vehicle operators, suppliers of products and services and ROV support vessels.

    In 800 pages this latest edition of the book gives technical and performance data on 460 ROVs, including 94 AUVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles), 116 tracked, towed and free flying burial and trenching systems, 37 towed underwater surveying systems and215 general work, inspection and observation vehicles. Also included is extensive information, with full contact data, on 200 ROV operating companies and over 710 companies specialising in the manufacture and supply of ROV related underwater products, equipment and technical support services. In a final chapter a register of all dedicated ROV support vessels with specifications, performance data, photographs and GA (General Arrangement) drawings is provided for 161 ships.

    In the thirteen years since the first edition of this book was published, it has grown with the industry it serves to become, say OPL, the standard reference work and directory on the subject and is therefore essential reading for anyone involved or interested in the ROV and associated underwater business.

    Further information on the new edition of Remotely Operated Vehicles of the World - Price 165/$325/ 248, is available from Oilfield Publications Limited at 15 The Homend, Ledbury, HR8 1BN, Herefordshire, UK.
