DOF Subsea Orders Forum ROVs

Forum Subsea Technologies has secured orders from DOF Subsea to supply three of its Ultra Compact Perry XLX-C work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

DOF Subsea will deploy the vehicles onto three of its ROV support vessels for recently awarded projects in Brazil.

The systems will be manufactured at Forum’s UK facility at Kirkbymoorside in Yorkshire and delivered in the first quarter of this year.

The 2,000m rated 150HP XLX-C vehicles, which are coupled with Dynacon LARS designs, are the first of their kind to be delivered to the market, Forum said.

These latest Perry ROVs are powered by 150HP main and auxiliary hydraulic system providing unparalleled thrust in an ROV of this class.

Kevin Taylor, Forum Subsea Technologies vice president of subsea vehicles, said: “Forum’s range of Perry ROVs are the most long-established and recognisable vehicles in the subsea industry due to their quality, reliability and flexibility.

“In total, DOF Subsea has more than 60 of Forum’s ROVs in their global fleet. As the market continues to pick up from a sustained downturn, it is reassuring to see this ongoing confidence in our systems which meet the operational resilience and safety standards our clients require.

“Forum Subsea has a robust strategy of providing first-class engineering, after market support and service to offshore contractors from our operating centres in the key regions. We look forward to continuing to support DOF Subsea in their global operations.”

DOF Subsea is pleased with Forum and the long relationship providing DOF Subsea with the high quality of work-class remotely operated vehicles, including support needed for our ROV business,“ said Ingve Osberg, DOF subsea group asset manager.
