Canada: Pro-Dive Marine Services Gets new Remotely Operated Vehicle


Pro-Dive Marine Services in Canada has taken delivery of a Cougar-XT ROV from Saab Seaeye.

David Squires, president of Newfoundland-based Pro-Dive, says the Cougar-XT will bring an important inspection and electric work ROV resource to Canada’s East Coast oil and gas sectors. It makes an important addition to their existing ROV fleet and its offshore capabilities.

The company has grown since 1983 to become a major operator in the region where they provide ROV and diving services, construction and drill support, concrete mattresses, offshore grouting, subsea markers, offshore project support staff and subsea engineering.

The power of the 2,000m-rated Cougar-XT means it can operate heavy duty tooling and handle a wide range of work tasks including drill support, salvage, survey and IRM, at a much lower cost than using an hydraulic work ROV, claims Saab Seaeye. Also, different tooling options are easily added and changed, using the ROV’s modular interface and bolt-on custom skids.

Tooling specified by Pro-Dive for their Cougar-XT includes a dual, five-function heavy duty manipulator. It is also fitted with three cameras including a Kongsberg colour zoom, all of which are mounted on a pan and tilt system.
