FMC to supply six UHD-III ROV systems to C-Innovation

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – FMC Technologies Inc. (NYSE: FTI) has received an order from C-Innovation to supply six UHD-III ROV systems for its subsea operations business. The ROV systems will be supplied by FMC Technologies' Schilling Robotics business unit and are expected to be delivered in early 2015.

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.
