FMC Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has received an order from C-Innovation to supply a fleet of six UHD-III Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) systems for its subsea operations business.
The UHD-III ROV systems are the latest generation of ultra heavy-duty work-class vehicles, and will expand C-Innovation’s global ROV fleet to more than 50 systems. The UHD-III ROV incorporates FMC Technologies’ new ISOL-8 Pump. The award winning ISOL-8 Pump is a key feature that enables compliance with API Standard 53, which requires a secondary intervention method on blowout preventors (BOPs) to close rams in less than 45-seconds. The UHD-III is the only API 53 compliant ROV in the market, enabling secondary BOP intervention at a fraction of the traditional cost.
“FMC Technologies is very pleased to have been awarded this contract by C-Innovation,” said Tore Halvorsen, FMC Technologies’ Senior Vice President, Subsea Technologies. “We are delighted that our focus on providing advanced ROV equipment that increases our customers’ offshore productivity is helping C-Innovation continue to grow at a rapid pace.”
