SEAEYE's for STENMAR
The Aberdeen based Stenmar Group has confirmed
an order valued at GBP 750,000 for three Seaeye ROVs. The
systems will be made available for ROV contractors to rent
and are intended to help fill the current worldwide shortage
of observation and inspection vehicles.
The first delivery will be a Seaeye 600DT eyeball
class system that will be commissioned at Stenmar's Underwater
Centre, Fort William, in mid May. The second and third systems
will be Seaeye open frame electric powered ROVs to be delivered
later in the year. They will have the Seaeye Panther, Puma,
Surveyor Plus and Tiger to choose from.
'We selected Seaeye ROVs for our rental pool
based on their universal acceptance by the offshore oil and
gas industry', said Carl Roemmele, Sales and Development Manager
at Stenmar, 'the final choice for our open frame systems will
depend on the requirements of the main markets that we serve.
Seaeye Surveyors, for example, are the 'standard' observation
and survey ROVs specified in Australia and the Far East, while
Tigers and Pumas are the local preference'.

SEAEYE SEND ANOTHER SURVEYOR PLUS DOWN UNDER
Seaeye Marine have announced their first ROV
order of the new millennium from Tamboritha Consultants Pty
Ltd of Perth, Western Australia.
Tamboritha will take delivery of Seaeye Surveyor
Plus serial number 225 at the end of January. It will be supplied
fitted with a five function manipulator, front and rear sonar,
CP probes, and have spare hydraulic capacity and a 440vac,
3 phase outlet to power larger tools. This will be the sixth
Seaeye ROV to be delivered to Australia and will be used for
pipeline inspection, survey, rig and intervention support
'Until recently we have relied on subcontractors
to provide us with ROV services but now feel that we need
to bring this capability in house', says Wayne Ham, Managing
Director of Tamboritha. 'In selecting our first ROV, we reviewed
the results from the various systems that we have used in
the past and chose the Seaeye Surveyor Plus for its versatility
and its tremendous power which is needed to cope with the
strong cross currents that we often encounter in Australia'.
Seaeye ROVs are supported in Australia by Underwater
Video Systems with offices and factory trained technicians
in Perth and Melbourne.
