Forum said on Tuesday that DOF Subsea would deploy the vehicles onto three of its ROV support vessels for recently awarded projects in Brazil.

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

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

According to the company, these latest Perry ROVs are powered by a 150HP main and auxiliary hydraulic system providing unparalleled thrust in an ROV of this class.

Kevin Taylor, Forum Subsea Technologies’ VP of subsea vehicles, said: “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.”

Ingve Osberg, DOF subsea group asset manager, added: “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.”
