    Schilling delivers extended-tether TMS for Acergy

    Equipment & Technology // April 6, 2006

    Schilling Robotics has shipped Acergy's first XE extended-tether TMS.

    Schilling Robotics has announced shipment of its first XE extended-tether TMS unit to Acergy. 

    The TMS will be paired with the Acergy SCV 32, the latest vehicle in the SCV work-class line.

    The TMS is equipped with 520m of 35mm tether but has drum capacity for up to 825m. 

    While tether capacity was a factor in Acergy’s choice of the XE TMS, the variable-speed spooling and flexible control system were also important factors.

    The SCV and TMS will be installed on Seaway Legend, a construction support ship for deepwater offshore projects that include general ROV and construction services, trenching and pipeline burial, suction anchor deployment, subsea completions, and pipeline remediation. 

    The vessel will be operating off the coast of West Africa.
