Ennsub to supply ultra-deepwater ROVs

Ennsub has been awarded a multi-million pound contract by ROVOP to design and manufacture two ultra-deepwater workclass ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicle) launch and recovery systems.

The systems will be installed into global oil and gas subsea construction specialist Ceona’s new-build multiple lay vessel, the Ceona Amazon.

According to Aberdeen headquartered Ennsub, the scope of work involves the provision of fully integrated deployment systems capable of operating in heavy-weather conditions through the use of high-speed electric winches providing Active Heave Compensation (AHC) capability.

The equipment, which is estimated to take around six months to design and build, will be installed into the Ceona Amazon during Q3 2014 and will commence operation in January 2015 when the vessel is due to come into service.
