Canyon Offshore Deploys UHD-III ROVs on Grand Canyon II

Canyon Offshore, subsea remotely operated vehicle (ROV) operator, has mobilized two new UHD-III ROVs to the Grand Canyon II vessel.

The Grand Canyon II is designed to perform a broad range of subsea operations, with DP3-class station keeping for work in severe weather conditions. It features a 250T heave compensated crane, facilities to launch port and starboard side ROVs simultaneously.

The vessel’s first project was for survey and trenching work in the UK. The UHD-IIIs were utilized continuously for a four week period, with only one hour of maintenance time, the company explained.

We are delighted to have installed two new UHD-III ROVs, complete with heave compensated launch and recovery systems onboard the Grand Canyon II, the second in the series of our flag ships. The UHD-III ROVs are already proving to be great assets,” said Ian Edmonstone, President for Canyon Offshore.

“We are very pleased to continue our relationship with Canyon Offshore, in providing equipment as critical to their operations as ROVs. The reliability and versatility of the UHD-III ROV are great assets to their new Grand Canyon II vessel,” stated Tyler Schilling, President for FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics.
