SMD Tests Curvetech Parts for New 6000m Quasar ROV

Following the contract award from Shanghai Salvage for a 6000m Quasar Work Class ROV, SMD engineers have successfully completed work on the associated Curvetech subsea components to assure maximum working depth up to 6000 meters.

SMD has a dedicated team of engineers who specialise in the design and testing of SMD’s Curvetech components.

Michael van Zwanenburg, principal Curvetech engineer adds: “Our in-house Curvetech engineers have years of experience developing components for subsea systems. We want to offer the best products for our customers every time. This allows them to buy with confidence, knowing that they are always getting the quality they need. We have a strong ethos and track record of providing components that can be can relied upon.”

The testing means that the Curvetech range now includes compensators and electrical control Principal Circuit Boards (PCBs) rated for 6000m depth operations.

Mark Collins, managing director for SMD ROVs, said: “Reliability of SMD vehicles and components is key to our clients’ success and we commit to this at all levels. Hyperbaric testing of critical components is an expensive operation but by performing this testing our clients can be confident that our ROVs will operate reliably right from delivery. SMD’s aim is always zero vehicle down-time.”
