    Allseas continues ROV fleet expansion with three more Schilling UHD ROVs

    Vessel & ROV News // September 4, 2007

    Schilling Robotics is to supply Allseas Group with more ROVs.

    Schilling Robotics is to supply Allseas Group SA with three additional ultraheavy-duty UHD ROV systems in late 2008. 

    Allseas will use the systems to perform survey support, pipeline touchdown monitoring, and a wide array of construction support tasks.

     

    The ROVs have 150shp and are rated for operation to 4,000m. The systems include Schilling Robotics extended-excursion XE TMS systems, two of which have 850m tethers and independent propulsion systems.

     

    Special features for survey and pipeline inspection operations include camera booms and profilers that pop up from the vehicle’s rear for deployment.  Schilling’s standard AutoTrack utility, which allows survey coordinates to control vehicle movement, will further facilitate survey operations.
