Three More SMD Quantum WROVs for COOEC

SMD delivered three Quantum Work Class ROV (WROV) systems to China’s offshore engineering construction company, COOEC Subsea Technology Co Ltd.

SMD were awarded contracts to supply COOEC with three Quantum MkIII 3000m rated WROV systems in the first quarter of 2015. The orders include one 12Te and two 15Te launch and recovery systems, SMD DVECS-S control systems for each vehicle and a comprehensive spares and support package.

In addition to supporting COOEC during system mobilisation, the contract includes a comprehensive SMD customer training package for COOEC personnel, with the option for training to take place at SMD’s training suite in North East England, or at the customers’ preferred location.

John McCann, SMD Regional Manager Asia Pacific said: “We are delighted that, following a competitive open market tender, COOEC have again selected SMD as their partner of choice going forward.”

DVECS-S control includes an advanced dynamic positioning system, allowing hands free hovering and navigation and thus enabling the pilot to concentrate on the job in hand. The user friendly system allows the pilot to simply point-and-click on the map screen to move the ROV. Through communication with commonly fitted ROV instruments DVECS-S can accurately control the position of the ROV throughout the water column - even in high currents, the company explained.

SMD first supplied COOEC with WROVs over ten years ago. COOEC now have a total of nine SMD WROVs in their fleet following delivery of the three new Quantum systems.
