    SMD to supply Hallin Marine with Quantum XPs and launch and recovery system

    Vessel & ROV News // July 29, 2010

    SMD in the UK has announced that it has been awarded a contract for supply of two complete Quantum XP construction class ROV systems to Hallin Marine. 

    The two high specification systems include Quantum XP 200hp ROVs, Tophat tether management systems, umbilical winches and vessel mounted control consoles. 

    A new gantry launcher will also be supplied for launching the systems from dedicated ROV hangers. 

    The gantries, designed and manufactured by SMD, position the ROV/TMS stack far from the vessel edge by utilizing a multi-stage telescoping action. 

    The low profile, top hung design maximizes the tool skid carrying capacity of the ROV whilst leaving a clear floor area for maintenance.

    The Quantum XP is is designed to undertake the most demanding construction, IMR and survey tasks and boasts a multitude of spare high flow hydraulic and Ethernet data channels and includes SMD’s ROV dynamic positioning system – AutoROV - as standard.
