Seatools Upgrades Stornes FPROV

Seatools has completed the upgrade of the fall pipe remotely operated vehicle (FPROV) installed on Van Oord’s flexible fall pipe vessel ‘Stornes’.

The work entailed a depth upgrade that enables Van Oord to perform precision rock installation in water depths of up to 2100 meters.

Seatools initially delivered the fall pipe ROV in 2007, with a depth rating of 1350 meters.

An ongoing trend in the direction of deep-water and ultra-deep-water fields demanded a greater depth rating of the fall pipe ROV.

The upgrade, allowing for working depths of up to 2100 meters, required modification of both the ROV’s electronic system as well as its software, the company explained.
