FMC Technologies continued delivery of UHD-III remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to C-Innovation this month. Their September delivery is the seventh UHD-III for their fleet, with an eighth vehicle delivering in October 2015.
C-Innovation has purchased more than 50 FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics ROVs since entering the ROV market in 2007. In addition to the newest two UHD-IIIs, C-Innovation is upgrading all (11) of its first-generation UHD ROVs to increase offshore efficiency, available horsepower, reliability, and automated features for advanced project handling. The upgrades will be done by FMC Technologies, via its Schilling Robotics business unit, over the next 18 months.
“By continuing to invest in market-changing technology for our ROV fleet, we offer our oil and gas customers the most effective and reliable systems available today,” said Steven Thrasher, Technical Director for C-Innovation. This translates to an increased level of performance and efficiency that C-Innovation delivers to its customers for their subsea operations.”
FMC Technologies’ Schilling Robotics business unit offers the most sophisticated and advanced robotics technology in the subsea oil and gas industry. Its ROVs deliver the most power and efficiency in their class, and directly benefit operators through high fidelity, automated control modes: Intelligent Power Management, StationKeep™, AutoDisplacement™, and AutoTrack™ that provide precision and stability while performing difficult intervention tasks.
“Our continued investment in developing ROV technologies that deliver superior levels of operational productivity to customers is unmatched. We are delighted to continue our long-standing partnership and collaboration with C-Innovation as they expand and upgrade their fleet,” said Tyler Schilling, President for FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics.
