FMC Technologies gets UHD-III ROV order from Tidewater Subsea

FMC Technologies, Inc. has announced that it has received an order from Tidewater Subsea, L.L.C. for two new UHD-III remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) from its Schilling Robotics business unit.

The ROV systems are expected to be delivered in fourth quarter of 2014. Leveraging Tidewater’s global footprint, Tidewater will provide complete solutions to a growing customer base in some of the most challenging and remote locations in the world.

The UHD-III system is the latest generation of work-class vehicles, incorporating FMC Technologies’ award winning ISOL-8 Pump as a key feature that enables compliance with API Standard 53, which requires a secondary intervention method on blowout preventers (BOPs) to close rams in less than 45-seconds. The UHD-III is the only API 53 compliant ROV available on the market, and it enables secondary BOP intervention at a fraction of the traditional cost.

Tidewater is the leading provider of offshore service vessels (OSVs) to the global energy industry. Tidewater’s newest venture, Tidewater Subsea, offers long term value added services with experience in subsea construction, IMR, custom engineered and subsea solutions.

“We are delighted that Tidewater has again chosen Schilling Robotics’ vehicles for their subsea operations, said Tyler Schilling, President for the Schilling Robotics’ business unit. “By focusing on our customers’ offshore productivity through easy to operate designs and rapid service procedures, we have been able to help them reach their performance objectives.”
