IKM Starts Remote WROV Ops in Norway

IKM has started a commercial onshore controlled ROV operations at its headquarters in Bryne Norway.

In the near future up to three work class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and one observation ROV on Statoil’s Snorre B and Visund installations will be controlled from IKM Subsea’s onshore control center.

One of the work class ROVs, the RROV, has been designed and engineered to be permanently based on the seabed and will only be brought to surface for periodic maintenance, IKM explained.

The company acceptance test (CAT) with Statoil was completed on Monday with the ROV at Snorre B and the dual control center is now up and running.

“We foresee a potential significant cost saving for our clients with less POB and increasing operational time offshore for the ROVs. With this setup and proven technology in place we see this as the first of many stepping stones into the future of ROV technology for IKM Subsea,” said Hans Fjellanger, business development manager at IKM Subsea.
