Offshore staff

PORTSMOUTH, UK – ASV Ltd.’s C-Worker 6 has carried out a seabed transponder calibration in 1,300-m (4,265-ft) waters. The trials, in the Gulf of Mexico, were conducted in rough conditions with 2.5-m (8-ft) waves.

C-Worker is the world’s first unmanned oil and gas workboat. ASV designed and built the 6-m (20-ft) vehicle in Portchester, UK.

ASV Technical Sales Manager Brian Anderson said: “This unique unmanned capability could save the oil and gas industry millions of dollars. The proven ability to conduct precise subsea positioning in challenging conditions, broadens the possible applications for C-Worker.”

ASV has completed the build of a second C-Worker vessel, with sea trials now taking place in the UK.
