ODIM has been awarded a contract worth about NOK 50 million to supply four automated handling systems for remotely operated vehicles (ROV) for two vessels to be built at Freire Shipyard in Spain, for the Sea4 shipping company. The systems are due to be delivered in fourth quarter 2009 and first quarter 2010.
Sea4 is a new customer for ODIM. The contract embraces delivery of Launch and Recovery systems (ODIM LARS) for two vessels under construction for the Sea4 shipping company. Both vessels will be equipped with over-side ODIM LARS for launch over the ship side, and one moon pool-based system designed for launch through a moon pool with a cursor system. All systems are designed to handle work-ROVs on water depths down to 4,000 meters.
