ROVOP has invested in one of the most powerful subsea vehicles of its kind.
The Saab Seaeye Cougar XT ROV. It is not only capable of operating in hazardous locations and environments – including high currents of up to 3 knots – but features an array of cutting edge subsea tools and sensing technology such as the latest 3-D sonar and a laser measurement camera.
The layout of the ROV, which can be deployed for oil and gas and marine renewables, has been specially designed by ROVOP to ensure it takes up less valuable deck space on vessels and rigs.
Mark Vorenkamp, chairman of Aberdeen-headquartered ROVOP, said: “The Cougar XT is a tremendous asset for ROVOP and significantly underpins our capabilities.
“It is widely recognised by the industry for its track record and reliability, while it brings considerable added value for our customers in terms of cost effectiveness. We see it as particularly valuable for inspection, repair and maintenance, survey, drill support and wind farm construction. Taking into account the key factors of safety, reliability, space and cost, the Cougar XT excels.”
