Bibby Subsea orders ROVs for ‘Brandon Bordelon’

Bibby Subsea, Bibby Offshore’s Houston-based division, has commissioned two HD work-class ROVs (Remote Operated Vehicles) designed by FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics.

Capable of operating at depths of up to 3000m, the ROVs will be working in the Gulf of Mexico on Bibby Subsea’s new U.S. Flagged Jones Act compliant vessel, the Brandon Bordelon. The HD ROVs are scheduled for delivery in the second Quarter of 2015.

According to Bibby Subsea, the vessel provides a versatile and cost effective approach to a variety of operations; including IMR operations (inspection, maintenance and repair), light construction, survey and inspection work. This paired with

the technically advanced ROVs will bring efficiency and ease of operation to Bibby Subsea’s Gulf of Mexico projects. Bordelon Marine is dedicating the ROVs and vessel package to the Warrior Benefit charity for combat wounded U.S. soldiers.

“We are very pleased to have selected FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics as our ROV provider in support of our Brandon Bordelon vessel project,” says Errol Campbell, ROV Operations Manager, Bibby Subsea.

“We are delighted that Bibby Subsea has decided to rely on our HD model ROVs for their most recent investment. The HD ROV has quickly become one of the most efficient ROVs in the oil and gas market for a wide variety of subsea projects,” stated Tyler Schilling, President for FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics.
