Subsea Vision Acquires Another Saab Seaeye Cougar XT ROV

Subsea Vision has added a forth Saab Seaeye Cougar XT to its fleet.

The 2000 metre-rated Cougar is to assist in unexploded ordnance (UXO) disposal.

The ROV is used to locate and identify UXOs, which can include excavating the seabed to see the objects more clearly. The Cougar then lays a charge alongside the UXO, ready for remote detonation from the surface Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Officer, the company explains.

If there is a risk that items nearby could be damaged, the UXO is removed by the ROV for disposal elsewhere.

Chris Bryant, managing director of Subsea Vision, said: “To maintain commonality of equipment throughout our ROV fleet, Saab Seaeye is an obvious and vital choice for us. The Saab Seaeye support to our management within Subsea Vision is excellent.”

The addition of a further Cougar to the fleet comes from expanded opportunities made possible since the company joined James Fisher & Sons Plc and linked with James Fisher Subsea Services.
