Sub-Atlantic in ROV deal with AALEA

Sub-Atlantic, a manufacturer of remotely operated vehicles (ROV), has won a second contract with Italian oil and gas subsea services provider, AALEA Offshore.

Under the contract, Sub-Atlantic will deliver one of its Tomahawk observation ROV systems.

The Tomahawk has been optimised as a survey system, configured with a subCAN control and diagnostics system, and powered by Sub-Atlantic’s DC propulsion system, the company explains.

Sub-Atlantic notes that this is the second system of its kind that it has provided for AALEA, with the first one completing a major 100 km pipeline survey through the Strait of Messina, a narrow passage of water in the Mediterranean Sea between Sicily and the Italian mainland.

The company said that a total of nearly 2.000 km of survey has already been performed through both the cable route and pipeline.

Ryan Lumsden, global product director at Sub-Atlantic, said: “Securing repeat business from AALEA underlines the ROV’s high capability and performance.”

“AALEA is an innovative company which drives our Tomahawk system to a new level and we look forward to building on this and our working relationship with them.”

The latest Tomahawk ROV for AALEA will be manufactured at its manufacturing base in Kirkbymoorside, Yorkshire, and is due to be delivered in Q3 this year.
