MYSTERY OF THE RED LAKE

Set in a sheer-sided bowl of rock, accessible by climbing gear alone, the Red Lake in Croatia has never revealed the secret of its depths.

Now, mountaineering skills and a Saab Seaeye Falcon ROV will offer the first ever insight into the third largest sinkhole lake in the world.

Many attempts to survey the lake have failed, even thwarting an earlier team of underwater specialists.

No one knows how deep it is, nor how it is fed, or if it is connected to other water systems.

A ray-finned fish, particular to the lake, sometimes appears in nearby waterways to give the only clue that an underwater connection might exist.

Solving the mystery became urgent when the level of the lake dropped 80 metres, and sent the Croatia Facility of Civil Engineering in search of answers.

They commissioned top Adriatic ROV and diving company, Neptun-Sub to undertake the daring task of sending down the Falcon ROV.

Their mission was to discover the depth of the lake, create a 3D profile, and film the underwater surfaces.

Lowering the Falcon down a 300 metre vertical cliff face needed the skills of mountaineers.

Their task was only made possible because the Falcon is small enough to be manhandled, yet powerful enough to perform precise work, carrying a wide range of sensors and tools such as high specification cameras and sonar systems as well as manipulators. It is packed with advanced technology usually found in much larger underwater vehicles.

Once the exploration team sent the Falcon diving, it discovered that the Red Lake - taking is name from iron oxide colouring of the rocks within which it sits - is in fact 255 metres deep, four metres of which are below sea level - and it is funnel-shaped.

The filming and 3D survey results, along with data collected by instruments left in the lake, are currently being evaluated by the Croatian Faculty of Civil Engineering, and will be published at a later date.

SQUEEZING A PANTHER

Long known for squeezing more from an ROV with creative tooling ideas, Eriksson Diving now plans to exploit the exceptional power of their new Saab Seaeye Panther XT Plus.

A fan of Seaeye ROVs since the 1980s, company head, Arne Eriksson was early to spot the potential in underwater vehicles as a platform for new ways to save time and money.

He sees the same potential in the Panther XT Plus.

"It is a powerful and sophisticated platform with an open structure that makes it easy to work on any system and fit almost anything you want," he says. "And with its dual power, independent thrusters, and twin Schilling manipulators, it is a formidable machine."

For him the ten thruster-strong Panther, with 50% more power and 30% faster through the water than any in its class, offers a chance for even more creative tooling opportunities.

Looking to squeeze even more out of the vehicle, Arne Eriksson also has cable cutting equipment and a small zip pump on the ROV for de-burying objects. Survey equipment such as TSS 440 and 350 can be installed on the vehicle on a separate tray.

The fact that the Panther can handle 90% of tasks normally undertaken by an hydraulic work-class vehicle, means it will bring major savings during operations.

It is easier to move around than an hydraulic ROV, and can be set up in hours rather than days and needs fewer crew. Spares cost less and repairs are cheaper.

It has the power and design architecture to accommodate a wide range of tooling, whilst remaining stable and manoeuvrable. Yet it is small and agile enough to work inside rig and platform jackets, but powerful enough to open and close pipeline valves and operate in strong currents.

Indeed faced with strong currents, having 10 powerful thrusters in hand means the Panther XT Plus can hold station in currents whilst working at complex or robust tasks.

Arne Eriksson welcomes the reassuringly high level of redundancy offered by the exceptional number of thrusters, that promises to keep the vehicle working before bringing it home. "You have to be fully risk-aware in this business," he says.

Already undertaking a wide range of ROV services, the Panther opens up more possibilities for the company, including shallow water wind farm work, recovering unexploded ordnance - even assisting in hydraulic work-class vehicle recovery.

Eriksson likes that the Panther XT Plus' payload means it can carry dual Reson 7125 multi-beam sonars as well as pipe-tracker equipment.

The Panther's first task was a search and salvage contract. Here Eriksson chartered a vessel and mobilised a package of two ROVs with side scan sonars and survey equipment for positioning. He used the TMS-based Panther XT Plus with Schilling manipulators in the primary role and a Surveyor Plus for the second system. After acquiring targets by high frequency Klein side-scan sonar, Eriksson found that the high performance handling of the Panther made it easy to attach lift wires to the objects.

Eriksson Diving is a long established provider of ROV services, operating in the North Sea, Baltic area.

BLUESTREAM BOOST FLEET OF SAAB SEAEYE ROVs

Bluestream has taken delivery of the third of four ROVs ordered from Saab Seaeye in the last twelve months.

Their new 2000 metre-rated Cougar XT is the second of this model to be added to the 11 strong ROV fleet operated by the Netherlands-based Offshore services company.

Managing director, Rolf de Vries, sees the Cougar as further investment in Bluestream's ROV resources and its commitment to remote technology.

"We are ready to meet the needs of diverse clients across different market sectors," he says.

He added that the Cougar XT was chosen as a proven system that is ideal for light work-class jobs and survey tasks. It can also be adapted to receive a wide variety of sensors, ancillary equipment and tooling.

Bluestream's model comes with an array of cameras, sonar, five-function manipulator and hydraulic disk cutter. A detachable bare skid is also supplied ready for different tooling options.

"We invest heavily in tooling to offer multiple services across the offshore oil and gas industry, and the renewables sector," says Rolf de Vries.

He goes on to explain: "Tooling options are a vital resource for undertaking a wide number of tasks, ranging from drill support, HP cleaning, grinding, salvage, intervention and non-destructive testing - to pipeline survey work, pipe-tracking, IRM, and tailor made solutions".

Bluestream has a reputation for finding imaginative tooling solutions to cut operating costs and improve safety - they were first to adapt a Saab Seaeye Surveyor ROV for Christmas Tree installation work.

Their solution included an innovative torque tool that could operate delicate needle valves within torque tolerances without needing the dexterity of a diver's hand.

"Using a compact ROV with in-house developed smart work-class tooling capabilities avoided any diver intervention at 30 metres," explains Bluestream's project engineer, Job Biersteker. "It made huge savings in manpower costs, and avoided risking diver safety - and it can work almost 24 hours a day".

Bluestream Offshore provide a wide range of services to the international oil and gas industry, along with the renewable and maritime sectors.

SEA OWL REBORN

The first 360° ROV to work in any orientation - even upside down - has been re-launched by Saab Seaeye.

The Sea Owl concept, successfully introduced by Saab in the 1980s, has been completely re-engineered with new chassis, advanced technology content and increased work capability.

Now named Sea Owl XTi, the new design combines acclaimed features from Saab Seaeye's stable of successful vehicles, with the added feature of 360° orientation.

The result is a vehicle made for hard-to-reach places and hostile environments that combines the characteristics of a highly manoeuvrable observation vehicle with the versatility of a larger ROV.

Core features that define the new Sea Owl XTi concept include the iCON intelligent control architecture for smarter operation, a doubling of the payload for handling a wide range of work-skid options, extreme manoeuvrability coming from seven thrusters, and a new depth rating to 2000 metres - compared to the earlier 500 metre rated model.

Key to the versatility of the Sea Owl XTi concept is the iCON distributive intelligence control system.

iCON independently manages each device on the vehicle for easier operator interface and control, greater redundancy and fault management, and simpler system interchange and upgrade.

Its building-block simplicity makes it easy to enhance the vehicle with future features from other vehicles like the Sabertooth AUV/ROV, and migrate systems such as auto hovering, waypoint navigation, tunnel navigation and obstacle avoidance.

The versatility and power of the Sea Owl XTi means that a range of work, scanning and observation systems can be added. These can be incorporated on the vehicle through skid or chassis to include manipulator, cutters, cp-probe and multi-beam sonar.

Operators will welcome the ease iCON brings to upgrades and support through remote internet access from anywhere in the world.

During operation iCON gives the pilot clear and enhanced information on the status of each device on the ROV along with auto redundancy that will keep the ROV working even if suffering multiple thruster damage.

The pilot will also find that iCON delivers better handling characteristics - including pitch and roll stabilisation for the best quality survey data.

Sea Owl XTi will be exhibited for the first time at the Offshore Technology Days, October 23 to 24, at Stavanger, Norway, on the stand of Saab's Norwegian distributor MacArtney AS.

Before then, the first order for the new ROV has already come from Norwegian-based DeepOcean, who are users of the original Sea Owl ROV.

Although the earlier Sea Owl has been a popular vehicle within Norway's continental shelf, the new XTi version is expected to find applications across the world.

ACSM ADD SECOND COUGAR TO FLEET

Off the coast of Spain subsea services company ACSM has completed sea trials of a second Saab Seaeye Cougar XT ready to add to their ROV fleet.

This follows successful trials offshore Norway and in the Baltic where ROV pilots and technicians reported minimal downtime and satisfaction with its performance.

Operating near the Port of Ferrol, Spain, the 2000 metre-rated Cougar undertook a range of free-swimming tests including survey routes, manipulator intervention on structures and other wet tests.

An additional test included a collaborative venture with Portugal-based Abyssal, trialling their 3D visualisation system that uses Augmented Technology to provide the pilot with a 'heads-up' display in 3D showing flight paths and checkpoints to guide the pilot to the exact target location.

For pilots the unrivalled manoeuvrability of the Cougar XT is a key feature, coming as it does from six thrusters, each having velocity feedback for precise control in all directions, with a control system that makes it more responsive than any other ROV on the market.

Spanish-based ACSM sees this as an important attraction along with the other unrivalled capabilities of the small yet powerful Cougar concept.


These include a reputation for reliability and versatility and an ability to carry out light work-class jobs, along with survey tasks and the easy fitting of a wide variety of sensors, ancillary equipment and tooling for tasks such as drill support, salvage and IRM.

FALCON FOR RIGS, WRECKS AND REEFS

Bound for tasks at the southernmost tip of Chile, Chilean diving and ROV operator, Nautilus, has added a Falcon ROV to its Saab Seaeye fleet of ROVs.

Francisco Ayarza, who founded Nautilus in 1959, bought his first Seaeye ROV in 1991 - and it is still in operation today, some 22 years later. Then he added a Boxer and a Tiger, and continues to expand his fleet with the top-selling Falcon.

It will be deployed throughout the Magellan Strait - the important navigational channel between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans - also further afield in the South Atlantic and Antarctica where some of the most hostile environments in the world can be found.

Missions will range from offshore support for the Chilean and Argentinean oil industries, wreck exploration and marine science studies amongst the reefs and waters of the region.

The Falcon will also examine salmon fishery production centres and inspect wastewater outflow pipelines, outside as well as inside.

Nautilus has already deployed the Tiger for work at the marine wastewater outfall at Puerto Montt city, where it assisted in severing an 800 mm diameter outfall line at 130 meters depth by positioning a tungsten steel cutting wire and monitoring the process throughout.

Francisco Ayarza chose the Falcon for its versatility. It is small and light enough to be manhandled overboard, even from a small boat. Although it has the power to operate a wide range of robust tooling and sensors for oil industry work with plug-and-go simplicity, it has a delicate touch that can collect fragile samples for marine science studies and carefully remove artefacts from wrecks.

Five powerful multi-directional thrusters with velocity feedback drive the Falcon's fingertip manoeuvrability and keep the vehicle steady, even in strong crosscurrents, whilst undertaking precision tasks or filming.

Nautilus' 300 metre-rated Falcon comes with manipulator and rope cutter, front and back facing cameras, an Imagenex sonar, altimeter, cathodic probe, and cleaning brush.

For diver safety, Francisco Ayarza particularly welcomes the benefits of deploying the Falcon and his other Saab Seaeye ROVs as diver support vehicles.

Not only can they undertake work considered too hazardous for divers, if a diver must go down the ROV can keep a watchful eye over them.

Valuable dive time can also be saved by first sending down the ROV to locate the dive site and preview the area for hazards, before allowing the diver to swim directly and safely to the point of interest. The ROV can also save diver time by transporting tools and objects back and forth to the surface.

The region can be a particularly cold and hazardous place in which to operate, even though the Magellan Strait is an attractive area rich in marine life that includes humpback wales, leopard seals, dolphins, penguins and albatross colonies.

This sea life shares the Strait with many large vessels navigating through it and which call upon Nautilus for hull inspection and survey work - a role ideally suited for the company's ROVs, now including the Falcon.

SAAB SEAEYE BUYS HYDRO-LEK

Top ROV manufacturer, Saab Seaeye, has acquired manipulator and ROV tooling maker, Hydro-Lek.

Saab Seaeye's managing director Jon Robertson sees a clear synergy between the two companies as manipulators and tools are key elements in the design and function of underwater vehicles.

Formed 20 years ago, Hydro-Lek has long supplied manipulators and hydraulic components to Saab Seaeye for its ROV systems.

Charlotte Mott, daughter of the late Chris Lokuciewski founder of Hydro-Lek, agrees that the two companies are ideally suited for each other. "The family are pleased to have found a new owner for Hydro-Lek who will be able to grow and develop the company into the future."

Jon Robertson says the acquisition will bring greater product content to Saab Seaeye through vertical integration and is an important step in the company's growth strategy.

Customers will gain from advances in systems integration following the blending of technologies that will create new and higher levels of integrated solutions.

The ability to offer a turnkey solution embracing both ROV systems and tooling technology will bring significant benefits to the market, says Jon Robertson.

He also believes that the new resource will accelerate the development of tooling for the company's innovative hybrid vehicle range.

In addition, he believes that Saab Seaeye's presence in the work sector of the ROV market will grow faster with the combination of a greater tooling system portfolio and new ROV development.

Both Hydro-Lek and Saab Seaeye customers will benefit from a fresh engineering partnership that will yield new systems and components backed by Saab Seaeye's reputation for innovation and commitment to engineering and quality standards.

These developments will also draw upon the collaborative engineering relationship with the Saab Group in Sweden that has already helped create innovative new concepts in underwater technologies.

Such collaboration will benefit from Saab Seaeye's 'Technology Toolbox' concept that has already won an award for innovation. The Technology Toolbox distils core technology across the range into a common architecture that creates the lowest number of parts, at the least possible cost for the highest possible performance and quality.

"Most importantly," says Jon Robertson, "all Hydro-Lek's customers can be assured of our total commitment to serving their technology needs and building Hydro-Lek as a key supplier in the global market, supported by Saab Seaeye's international sales and support presence".

PANTHERS PICKED FOR GULF

Zamil Mermaid Offshore Services has chosen three Saab Seaeye Panther XT Plus ROVs for a seven-year inspection and repair contract for Saudi Aramco.

The Panther XT is well known for its reputation as a small but high powered, light work ROV. Zamil Mermaid's operations manager, Neil Howie, says the Panther XT Plus is a versatile vehicle for all types of jobs. He adds that it has the advantage of a small footprint and an ability to work easily in two-knot shallow water currents, ideal for the Gulf.

And he says, "It is a high-end modern vehicle that is easy to maintain and well suited for the scope of work undertaken for Saudi Aramco."

Neil Howie explains that all three vehicles will need to carry out multiple work tasks including light construction, inspection and surveying.

Each of the three 1000 metre rated Panthers come with their own launch and recovery and tether management systems, along with a split control cabin and workshop - one of which is supplied by Zamil Mermaid.

The Panther XT Plus is a popular vehicle in the Gulf for a number of reasons:

  • It can handle 90% of the tasks normally undertaken by an hydraulic work-class ROV bringing major savings to operations in the Gulf.
  • Being a smaller system operators can use a smaller ship, if necessary – an advantage in the shallow waters of the region.
  • An electric vehicle is better suited for the warm waters in the Gulf where hydraulic ROVs have a problem keeping oil cool.

Faced with strong currents, the Panther XT Plus' unique combination of 10 powerful thrusters and twin Schilling manipulators means it can hold station in strong currents of up to four knots whilst working at complex or robust tasks.

In fact the Panther XT Plus has 50 per cent more power than any other ROV of its type and can swim 30% faster.

Whatever tasks Zamil Mermaid have planned for the Panther XT Plus, it has the power and design architecture to accommodate a wide range of tooling, whilst remaining stable and manoeuvrable. It is also small and agile enough to work inside rig and platform jackets, yet powerful enough to open and close pipeline valves and operate in strong currents.

And for an operator, its exceptional number of thrusters offers a reassuringly high level of redundancy to keep the vehicle working before bringing it home.

WORLD'S SMALLEST SURVEY SYSTEM GETS A LITTLE BIGGER

Innovatum, maker of the world's smallest system for the location, tracking and survey of submarine pipelines and cables, has added to its fleet of small-sized, yet powerful Falcon ROVs, the slightly larger but compact version of the more powerful Saab Seaeye Cougar XT.

They won their reputation for creating a smaller and smarter survey system that significantly cut the cost of inshore survey work. Their idea was to use the compact Falcon to create a small and rapidly mobilised package that can be deployed from a small vessel, ready to survey all types of inshore and coastal submarine cables and pipelines.

"Adding a Cougar XT Compact," says managing director Terry Slater, "will bring more power to survey work when operating close inshore in the strong currents and tidal flows of the southern North Sea - without a significant increase in size of vehicle."

click image to enlarge
added to its fleet of small-sized, yet powerful Falcon ROVs
Cougar XT Compact fitted with Innovatum's Smartrak system will bring more power
to survey work inshore in strong currents and tidal flows

Designed especially for working in shallow waters and in tight situations, the low-profile Cougar XT Compact minimises the effect of current with its reduced frame size, buoyancy and weight - and a thinner 17mm tether cable that reduces the effect of drag.

Its power to hold steady in cross currents and work with precise manoeuvrability comes from six highly responsive and power efficient thrusters, along with a fast acting control system.

Despite its small size, the Cougar XT Compact can be fitted with a wide range of equipment.

The Innovatum model is fitted with its own Smartrak system along with a high-resolution imaging sonar and dual-headed scanning profiler for mean seabed level measurement.

Innovatum's Smartrak is the only system in the world that can sense cables carrying either AC or DC current; and cables carrying no current or signal at all. It can also undertake passive tracking of steel pipelines with ranges and accuracy said to be better than any other system.

For survey work the Cougar, like the Falcon, has the advantage of a low electrical and acoustic noise signature for optimum survey sensor data.

The Innovatum system creates comprehensive reports and charts showing accurate cable route and depth of burial along the route. This data is required by installation contractors, owners and regulatory authorities, to ensure that the cable is properly buried and not in danger of being exposed to damage.

The system can undertake submarine cable surveys in shallow water depths - the typical scenario for offshore wind farms, interconnector power cables and coastal communications cables.

Innovatum is the world's leading manufacturer of magnetic sensors for the location, tracking and survey of submarine pipelines and cables. It has over thirty years continuous development experience in the field and its systems are sold world-wide.

PRESIDENT AND FALCON HELP LIGHT UP THE BRAIN

Glowing and fluorescent deep-sea creatures could reveal how the mind works.

Bright bioluminescent and fluorescent proteins found in marine life, when attached to human cells, become light-emitting markers that could help map the brain.

(NCBI) - PubMed)

President Obama's newly announced 'Brain Activity Map' project, gives impetus to the quest for understanding the human mind.

Alzheimer's and other diseases of the mind, along with cancer, could benefit from tracing otherwise invisible nerve damage.

Searching for the right bioluminescent organisms in the sea are Professor David Gruber at the City University of New York's Baruch College and Vincent Pieribone of The John B. Pierce Laboratory of Yale University.

They plan to send a Saab Seaeye Falcon ROV into the coral ecosystems deep in the mesophotic zones - first off the Florida coast, then in the Solomon Islands and the Red sea. They plan to study the biology of the deep coral reefs systems to better understand their ecology and genetics as well as to isolate novel glowing proteins.

The 1000 metre rated Falcon DR will be packed with the most advanced filming equipment ever fitted to an ROV.

Hollywood grade camera technology, used making movies like 'Avatar', as well as low-light cameras that can see in the dark, will be matched to single-mode fibre optics and a gigabyte Ethernet to give the fastest, highest grade, images possible.

David Gruber's team have collaborated with Professor Chris Roman and Brennan Phillips at the University of Rhode Island and Saab Seaeye engineers to develop new systems that will advance ROV observation technology considerably.

Adding and changing equipment on the Falcon is made easy with the ROV's distributed intelligence control system that allows up to 128 different devices to be fitted and changed as needed.

Its advanced system architecture is one reason why David Gruber chose the Falcon explaining: "Its creative design means we can push the limits".

The other reason for choosing such a small but technologically advanced ROV, is that a typical deep exploring ROV is too bulky to operate and poses a hazard to coral, whereas the Falcon DR can be manhandled from a small boat and manoeuvred below the water with delicate precision.



Supported by the National Science Foundation, David Gruber and his multi-university team have carried out initial research from diving in shallower depths but now need to explore deeper coral populations using an ROV.

Along with some deep corals, around 80 per cent of deep-sea marine life emit light, including jellyfish, squid and krill. The bioluminescence from these living organisms fulfils different purposes, from luring prey, to attracting a mate.

Imbedding mammalian cells with the genes for light-emitting and fluorescing proteins provides the potential for living cells to be studied noninvasively, without probing of the brain.

David Gruber says that the value of this development embodies the spirit of interdisciplinary research and collaboration between Saab Seaeye, marine biologists, neuroscientists and underwater engineers.

The scientists hope to contribute to President Obama's Brain Activity Map project by offering the kind of technological advance that neuroscientists believe will give a better understanding of the brain in a safer and less intrusive way.

BRAZIL GETS ANOTHER LYNX

Belov Engenharia has ordered a second Saab Seaeye Lynx ROV for its operations in Brazil's vast oil fields.

General Manager, André Weber Carneiro explains why he favours the Lynx. "It's powerful for its type, with a good depth rating that enables us to perform a wide span of services."

He says that the model has the power to handle some work tooling not usually possible in an ROV of its size. "And still has power left over to go where you want, and do what is needed."

click image to enlarge
The six thruster 1500 metre-rated Lynx

The six thruster 1500 metre-rated Lynx will be used for the inspection of oil lines, risers and jackets.

For line inspection a Tritech digital precision altimeter has been fitted to maintain accurate offset from the seabed as the ROV follows the pipeline.

When undertaking jacket inspection, a fitted CDL fibre-optic gyro means there is no magnetic interference from the jacket structure whilst accurately tracking the ROV's motion.

Along with the existing Lynx and a deep-rated falcon, the new ROV will work from both fixed rigs and ships.

Constantly moving the ROV system across and between rigs makes the Lynx system and its tether management cage an ideal choice, as it is particularly easy to relocate, says André Weber Carneiro.

He also says that operating the ROV from a cage reduces the influence of currents - even though its thruster power still allows precise manoeuvrability whilst swimming on its 250 metre excursion tether.

Other hi-spec equipment fitted to the system includes a Seaeye wide-angle low-light colour camera, a range of Konsberg cameras, including a high definition low-light CDD camera, a colour zoom camera and a high definition TV camera with fibre output.

A detachable tooling skid is also supplied together with a Gauntlet Plus four-function manipulator with a quick-change feature for fitting a cutter or rotary brush cleaner.

A CP contact probe also comes with the system.

With over 200 billion barrels of reserves estimated in Brazil's oil fields, the demand for powerful and intelligent ROVs that can work reliably in deep water operations will grow as the huge fields are developed.


Belov Engenharia has 30 years experience in civil, harbour and underwater works together with providing offshore services including ROV operations and hydrographic services.

The 5S system is adopted by leading organisations the world over as a proven way of improving manufacturing efficiency.

It is the first building block of lean manufacturing and was conceived in Japan by Hiroyuki Hirano, and introduced to Toyota with great success, and is now adopted around the globe.

The 5S's denote: sorting, setting in order, shining, standardising and sustaining.

Adopting the system is found to quickly bring efficiency, improved quality and speedier delivery to an organisation and its customers.

"The effect can clearly be seen," says Operations Director, Mark Exeter, observing that the transformation is particularly evident to anyone visiting the company. "Customers like what they see and appreciate the benefits it brings in terms of quality and delivery."

Maintaining the momentum of the commitment is important to its success.

"Training and auditing keep the momentum going," explains Mark Exeter, "whilst scoring and league tables introduce friendly rivalry and fun." Adding that the concept works best when habit-forming.


Staff involvement is the key to success according to Hiroyuki Hirano who suggests that employees must feel valued by the company for the system to work.

PANTHER WINS OVER PERSIAN GULF

Abu Dhabi-based, CCC (Underwater Engineering), reports significant savings in operational costs since deploying their new Saab Seaeye Panther XT Plus ROV in the shallow waters of the upper Persian Gulf.

"Its ten-thruster power easily overcomes the four-knot currents," says CCC's ROV Manager, Tavis Letherby, "and having two powerful Schilling manipulators to hand is a combination that stands out from everything else."

He finds that 90 per cent of the tasks normally undertaken by CCC's 150 HP hydraulic work-class ROVs is now possible with the Panther, bringing major savings in costs and logistics.

"  Its ten-thruster power easily overcomes the four-knot currents  "

Tavis Letherby, CCC's ROV Manager


click image to enlarge
new Saab Seaeye Panther XT Plus ROV in the shallow waters of the upper Persian Gulf

He quotes the ease of moving a 14 ton system rather than one weighing 60 tons; or having a faster 12 hour set up, rather than taking four days; and providing just 150 kVA of power generation instead of 500 kVA. Adding that spares and repairs are also cheaper.

"Being able to use smaller ships in support of a smaller system is a big advantage in the upper Gulf," says Letherby, who points out that big vessels are not as viable in the shallow waters of the region as in other parts of the world.

Its hyper-saline waters also make the electric vehicles better suited to the Gulf when compared with an hydraulic ROV that can have problems keeping oil cool.

What particularly wins over his clients, says Letherby, is the unique combination of 10 powerful thrusters and twin Schilling manipulators, which means the ROV can hold station in strong cross currents whilst working at complex or robust tasks.

"In the Panther, we get a vehicle that has 50 per cent more power than any other ROV of its type, can swim 30 per cent faster - and has a manipulator package with the dexterity of a human arm, yet the muscle power of an hydraulic work ROV."

He quotes one client saving 10 hours of barge time and other costs in their pipe laying operations by using the Panther XT Plus, rather than an hydraulic work ROV to release a Head of Pipe Anchorage made fast to a platform leg. Typically an hydraulic work vehicle would be launched to cut through and sacrifice a 75mm wire pendant. The cost-saving alternative was to secure the anchorage with disposable six-inch rope that could be cut with a knife - a task normally needing a diver's dexterity (and lengthy dive time whilst working in 60 metres) but made possible with the humanoid deftness of the Panther's powerful manipulator that can slice through the rope in a moment.

The design of the new Panther XT Plus draws upon the success of the Panther light work ROV concept with an added power boost and re-designed front end that can accommodate a greater range of tools and sensors including the larger and heavier manipulator arms.

For working to a tight deadline or in difficult conditions, the 10 thrusters in hand brings an added bonus to CCC operators by offering a reassuringly high level of redundancy.

CCC's 1000 metre-rated Panther XT Plus comes with an electronics pod for additional sensors, four cameras including a Kongsberg compact zoom model, and a Tritech Super SeaKing sonar, together with the Schilling manipulators and a tether management system.

Saab Seaeye is the world's largest manufacturer and market leader in electric ROV systems, and provider of autonomous and hybrid underwater vehicles. Markets include offshore energy, defence forces, marine science and hydro-engineering.
