ABERDEEN, Scotland – Specialist Subsea Services Ltd. has added two new ROV systems to its work class fleet. The new equipment is two Triton XLX 150 hp ROVs from Perry Slingsby Systems Ltd.
The new XLX units feature “auto-station-keeping”, high bandwidth survey multiplex and power circuit facilities, with a new “video wall” Human-Machine Interface (HMI) combined with intuitive touch-screen operator display and integrated diagnostics system, says Specialist Subsea Services (S3).
“The S³ XLX and XLS units share a large number of proven subsystems including propulsion, power distribution, manipulator fitment, video cameras, lighting as well as Tether Management Systems (TMS) and associated deployment A. Frame and Winch combinations,” says Graeme Kidd, S3 Managing director. “This allows S³ to offer greater technical flexibility when, for example, offering dual ROV operations.”
