Ennsub has completed the design and manufacture of two innovative workclass remotely operated vehicle (WROV) deployment systems, designed and manufactured for ROVOP and are due to be installed into a new build, tier one pipelay vessel early 2015.
The DEEP 4000 system's capabilities include a unique cable handling solution designed to maximize umbilical lifespan, particularly in ultra-deepwater and other high-fatigue applications such as active heave compensation.
The system also has a high-speed electric winch with full active-heave compensation, semi-dipping extendable A-frame and transfer skidding system for large tool packages. A new control system and human machine interface (HMI) provides the client with a fully integrated and centralized operating station.
Ennsub’s integrated ROV launch and recovery system (LARS) solutions offer a next generation approach to ROV deployment, particularly in supporting top-tier subsea construction assets where reliability and performance are required.
Scott Macknocher, Managing Director said: “We believe this technology highlights our ambition to become a leader in the field deepwater deployment solutions worldwide. The equipment presently under delivery offers a number of novel solutions to many of the current problems experienced by the ROV operating community.
“These include industry-leading umbilical handling, compact deck footprint, reduced hydraulic hosing and many enhanced control features which will have been designed in co-operation with experienced ROV operators and which will reflect the need for safety and reliable operation.”
The company offers a range of deep and ultra-deepwater deployment solutions for ROVs, subsea modules and bespoke subsea packages in addition to a suite of pipeline installation-related products and pipeline repair solutions. It also boasts an operations-led approach to design to suit the specific requirements of its customers.
Earlier this month, Ennsub was awarded a contract worth £2 million by Benthic to build a newly enhanced and portable LARS to complement the latest addition to its seabed drilling and geotechnical drill fleet.
