Forum Subsea Technologies announced Tuesday it has secured orders from DOF Subsea to supply three of its Ultra Compact Perry XLX-C work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROV). DOF Subsea will deploy the vehicles onto three of its ROV support vessels for recently awarded projects in Brazil.
The systems will be manufactured at Forum’s UK facility at Kirkbymoorside in Yorkshire and delivered in the first quarter of this year.
The compact 2,000m rated 150HP XLX-C vehicles, which are coupled with compact Dynacon LARS designs, are the first of their kind to be delivered to the market. Forum has engineered the ROV footprint to suit the current specifications required by DOF Subsea and their prospective clients. These latest Perry ROVs are powered by a 150HP main and auxiliary hydraulic system.
Kevin Taylor, Forum Subsea Technologies vice president of subsea vehicles said, “In total, DOF Subsea has more than 60 of Forum’s ROVs in their global fleet. As the market continues to pick up from a sustained downturn, it is reassuring to see this ongoing confidence in our systems which meet the operational resilience and safety standards our clients require.
“Forum Subsea has a robust strategy of providing first-class engineering, after market support and service to offshore contractors from our operating centers in the key regions.”
