France’s Bourbon has expanded its fleet by three subsea ROVs, continuing its growth in offshore oil & gas subsea services.
The company has commissioned 3 next-generation Heavy Duty Work ROVs (Remote Operated Vehicle) designed by FMC Technologies SchillingRobotics.
Capable of operating at depths of up to 3000 m, these underwater vehicles will be deployed on Multi-Purpose Support Vessels (MPSV) such as the Bourbon Evolution 800 series.
The ROVs are fitted with high-tech equipment – manipulator arms, dynamic positioning, high definition camera, sonar and software
They can carry up to 3000 Kg of special measurement or intervention tools. They are therefore ideal for activities such as survey, wellhead installation, or asset tie-in.
These HD Work ROVs help to perform a wide variety of tasks, including: monitoring of operations through video coverage, inspecting structures to check on corrosion, installing subseaequipment, assembling production systems, or taking measurements and collecting survey data.
