New Orient Marine Orders Three Forum ROVs

Forum Energy Technologies has received an order from New Orient Marine to supply three remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for its multi-purpose ice-class vessel currently under construction in Singapore.

The order includes two Perry XLX 200 horsepower, 4,000 meter work class ROV systems and one Sub-Atlantic Comanche 3,000 meter observation class ROV. Forum will also provide operation and maintenance training for New Orient Marine’s personnel, as well as on board support during the ROV mobilisation, the company informed.

Forum’s ROV systems are scheduled for delivery this year. New Orient Marine’s new build, multi-purpose ice-class vessel has been designed to operate in ambient temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius. The first project for the new vessel will involve subsea intervention, inspection, maintenance and underwater welding of existing gas pipeline systems.

Cris Gaut, Forum’s chairman and chief executive officer, said, “We are pleased that New Orient Marine has chosen Forum and we look forward to supporting a long-term relationship.”

A spokesperson for New Orient Marine remarked, “Adding the equipment from Forum on-board the vessel, will increase substantially its versatility and operational range, rendering it a very attractive vessel for a broad number of potential clients and projects.”
