Forum Presents New Electric ROV Range

Forum Energy Technologies has launched its new electric remotely operated vehicle (EROV) range.

Designed and manufactured in-house at Forum’s Kirkbymoorside Yorkshire facility, the XLe Spirit is the company’s first of a new generation of electric ROVs.

The vehicle is the smallest in the new range but is powerful enough to perform subsea maintenance and repair work with the use of its optional electric or hydraulic five function manipulator arm.

It uses Forum Integrated Control Engine (ICE++) found in larger work-class and trencher vehicles in the Forum product range.

Kevin Taylor, Forum’s VP subsea vehicles, said: “We recognized the time was right to introduce a new range of electric ROVs as confidence begins to return to a depressed market. The XLe Spirit is the first vehicle in the range with innovative features which will meet the expectations and requirements of operators.”
