Film-Ocean beefs up ROV fleet
UK ROV services company Film-Ocean has expanded its ROV fleet with the addition of a further Quasar 150HP Workclass ROV.
The company has seen four ROV systems added to the fleet over the past 12 months.
The 3000-metre medium-sized Quasar ROV can carry out surveying, IRM, drill support and construction tasks.
It is an all-rounder and also the backbone of Film-Ocean’s ROV fleet.
The Quasar ROV comes fitted with the latest technologies used for a broad range of operations.
Film-Ocean’s Quasar systems are both currently deployed in the North Sea and the Aegean Sea.
The systems support an electrical interconnection cable installation project.
Scott Jenney, Film-Ocean CEO, stated:
“The additional Quasar ROV system is the latest in a series of planned developments within the business and an excellent addition to the fleet.
“We continue to see a high level of enquiries for this type of ROV system and this investment allows us to provide the additional capacity that our customers require.”
Film-Ocean also recently invested in the design and manufacture of its latest compact ROV launch and recovery system (LARS).
Its LARS system has a smaller footprint than the more traditional A-frame systems.
It also has an overall weight reduction and its built-in foldable knuckle boom crane allows for operations where height restrictions may present a challenge.
The compact LARS solution is both flexible and adaptable to accommodate and launch Film-Ocean’s Tiger, Cougar and Panther ROV systems.
