COOEC takes delivery of three SMD Quantum ROVs

COOEC Subsea Technology, China’s offshore engineering construction company, has taken delivery of three SMD’s Quantum Work Class ROV (WROV) systems.

SMD was awarded contracts to supply COOEC with three Quantum MkIII 3000m rated WROV systems in the first quarter of 2015.

The orders include one 12Te and two 15Te launch and recovery systems, SMD DVECS-S control systems for each vehicle and a comprehensive spares and support package.

According to SMD, in addition to supporting COOEC during system mobilisation, the contract also includes a comprehensive SMD customer training package for COOEC personnel.

John McCann, SMD Regional Manager Asia Pacific said: “We are delighted that, following a competitive open market tender, COOEC have again selected SMD as their partner of choice going forward.”

SMD explained that DVECS-S control includes an advanced dynamic positioning system, allowing hands free hovering and navigation. The system allows the pilot to point-and-click on the map screen to move the ROV.

Through communication with commonly fitted ROV instruments DVECS-S can accurately control the position of the ROV throughout the water column, including high currents, SMD added.
