Perry Slingsby Systems has secured a contract to supply a workclass ROV system and equipment to Technip. The agreement will see PSS deliver a Triton XL47 system, Dynacon winch, surface power and control equipment and surface control van in December 2008 for use in oil and gas offshore construction and installation projects in Brazil.
PSSI chief operating officer Bruce Lokay said: "With over 45 systems delivered and a proven history in reliability and efficiency, the Triton XL is the world's most successful advanced workclass ROV and I am delighted that Technip have selected PSS as the solution to their ROV requirements.
CSIRO from Australia is undertaking a survey tour towards the Australian Bight for a baseline survey looking for oil traces in the water. The surveyors are deploying a CTD and a gravity corer measuring possible traces of oil in the water column. The survey mission also consists of hydrographic mapping techniques, GIS and environmental specialists to make sure the situation before exploration is mapped well in order to know what the environmental consequences of an eventual oil seepage or leak may consist of.
