Forum Sub-Atlantic ‘Mojave’ for Spanish ROV Training School

EuroROV, the Spanish ROV training and engineering company, has taken delivery of a Forum Sub-Atlantic Mojave vehicle for its newly-launched ROV pilot training facility.

The electric observation ROV, which was manufactured by Sub-Atlantic’s parent company Forum, can be set up and deployment using any domestic power supply.

Sebastian Ruggirello, co-founder of the training school, said: “The Mojave is a perfectly balanced small vehicle which is well suited to the training requirements of the students. It is powerful and highly responsive, giving the students an excellent grounding in vehicle control. The subCAN™ control and diagnostics system is an industry standard and familiarity with its operation is of great benefit to the pilot trainees when securing employment.”

Sub-Atlantic’s global product director, Ryan Lumsden, said: “To employ our Mojave vehicle for training purposes is a huge endorsement of its next generation subsea capabilities, and builds on the strong relationship that Sub-Atlantic and Forum have established with EuroROV.

“Electric ROVs have moved on significantly from the days when they were basically flying cameras. Now, they carry out a multitude of tasks due to major advancements particularly in the assortment of manipulators, tooling and sensors they can be fitted out with. Therefore, students at EuroROV’s training facility will learn how to use one of the industry’s most sophisticated and technically-advanced vehicles.”

EuroROV has just completed the first course from its new training school, based at Girona University. The training school complements EuroROV’s core business offering courses in offshore electronics as well as engineering consultancy services to the subsea industry.

The company sees a bright future in Spain for ROV training. Ruggirello said: “Although the subsea industry is on a smaller scaler here compared with other regions, the students are drawn from an international background attracted by small class numbers and one-to-one training from their instructors. The Mediterranean is also such a fantastic environment in which to fly an ROV.”
