Following the award of an order from Shanghai Salvage for a 6000m Quasar Work Class ROV (remotely operated vehicle), SMD engineers have successfully completed work on the associated Curvetech subsea components to assure maximum working depth up to 6000m.

SMD has a dedicated team of engineers who specialize in the design and testing of SMD’s Curvetech components, to deliver products that enable customers to maximize on remote subsea operations.  

The testing means that the Curvetech range now includes compensators and electrical control Principal Circuit Boards (PCBs) rated for 6000m depth operations, with these components available for direct purchase from SMD Services.

“Hyperbaric testing of critical components is an expensive operation but by performing this testing our clients can be confident that our ROVs will operate reliably right from delivery,” said Mark Collins, managing director for SMD ROVs. “SMD’s aim is always zero vehicle downtime."
