Two new FMC Technologies’ ROVs for Bourbon’s vessels

FMC Technologies has delivered two of four new HD remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to Bourbon Offshore this month and will deliver the remaining two in the fourth quarter of 2015

Capable of operating at depths of up to 3,000 meters (9,842 ft.) below sea level, FMC Technologies’ HD ROVs will be mobilized onto Bourbon’s dedicated fleet of multi-purpose support vessels.

Patrick Belenfant, Senior Vice President of Subsea Services for Bourbon, explains: “We provide our clients with highly-qualified, experienced ROV operators, capable of piloting and maintaining these next-generation ROVs, ensuring the proper monitoring of operations, upstream and downstream.

“These new deliveries mark the continuation of BOURBON’s commitment with Schilling Robotics that began with the development of our first HD vehicle in 2010.The efficiency and ease of operation of the HD ROVs offer our subsea projects technological advantages.” 

Tyler Schilling, President for FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics, said: “We engineer ROVs that are easy to operate and easy to maintain so that complicated tasks will be easier than anticipated for customers.

“The HD ROVs are highly maneuverable and therefore ideal for activities such as survey, equipment installation, or asset tie-in.”
