Oceanica Adds Two Lynx ROVs (Brazil)

Brazilian subsea engineering company, Oceanica, is expanding its Saab Seaeye ROV fleet with two new Lynx vehicles.

According to the company, each Lynx will be used in conjunction with two new vessels being built for Oceanica’s growing Petrobras activities in the vast Brazilian oil fields.

Head of ROV operations, Manoel Teixeira Lopes Filho, said: “I am really happy with the two Falcons we bought and believe the two Lynx will be equal in reliability and performance.”

Both of the 1500-metre rated, six thruster strong Lynx, will be used primarily for observation and inspection of pipelines and Automatic Mode Function systems on wells.

Each comes with Seaeye wide-angle low-light colour camera, a rear-facing mini colour camera, a monochrome high-definition enhanced CCD camera and a Kongsberg high-definition HDTV camera with fibre optic output.

Also fitted is a Super SeaKing dual frequency sonar head and a Fibre Optic Gyro System.

In addition each comes with a four-function manipulator, a water jetting system and hydraulic 25mm cable cutter.

Each Lynx has a Tether Management System and A-Frame Launch and Recovery System.
