FMC Technologies has delivered seventh UHD-III remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to C-Innovation this month, with an eighth vehicle delivering in October 2015.
In addition to the newest two UHD-IIIs, C-Innovation is upgrading all (11) of its first-generation UHD ROVs to increase offshore efficiency, available horsepower, reliability, and automated features for advanced project handling. The upgrades will be done by FMC Technologies, via its Schilling Robotics business unit, over the next 18 months, the company wrote.
