FET reported that its Subsea Technologies product line had won a contract from AQUA Exploracion for one of its Ultra Compact Perry XLX-C work-class ROVs, which will be equipped with a comprehensive spare parts package to optimize performance and reliability.

According to the UK company, the ROV will complement and increase the company’s existing capabilities and will be used to enhance subsea exploration, inspection, and intervention operations in challenging environments.

The XLX-C work-class ROV, originally manufactured at FET’s UK facility at Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire, will be sent to the factory for a refurbishment and re-testing.

“Our range of Perry ROVs are the most long-established and recognisable vehicles in the subsea industry due to their quality, reliability and flexibility,” said Kevin Taylor, FET’s Vice President – KMS and Subsea Robotics.

“We are extremely pleased that our ROV has been chosen to support AQUA Exploracion. The XLX-C WROV is one of the most versatile models on the market and has the capabilities required for the tasks that it will undertake for AQUA Exploracion.”
