Oceaneering ROVs for Statoil

Oceaneering has been awarded an eight-year contract by Statoil. The agreement is to provide two work class electric remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for Statoil’s CAT-J Platforms in the North Sea.

The new ROVs are currently being built in-house and called the eNovus.

According to the company, the eNovus, with capabilities such as the remote piloting and automated control technology exhibited in the NEXXUS ROV, will also incorporate a new automated cartesian manipulator control system that enables the manipulator to be functioned in an XYZ plane as well as automated functionality.

“The eNovus is evidence of the emerging trend for cleaner and more efficient work class ROV systems. The newly advanced ROV will also serve as the basis for a future hybrid between the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) and ROVs. Currently, the eNovus is under construction at our Morgan City facility and will be completed in the second quarter of 2016,” said Kevin Kerins, senior vice president, Underwater Vehicle Technologies.
