SeeTrack Offshore Unit Sales - 19/05/2008
Subsea 7 is to receive two new Hercules Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), currently being manufactured by SMD, fitted with SeeByte's Dynamic Positioning system; SeeTrack Offshore. The vehicles will add to the leading contractors' existing fleet of ROVs which provide services to the Subsea Umbilical, Riser and Flowline (SURF) sector.
SeeTrack Offshore adds additional automation to the ROV control process by providing the ability for the ROV to automatically maintain a fixed position above the seabed or follow a programmed course and speed. The system runs on the surface and is contained in a 19 inch rack. With SeeTrack Offshore the ROV can efficiently maneuver automatically compensating for the effects of currents. It can save time over conventional systems making operations safer and quicker.
