Schilling Robotics, LLC, experts in subsea systems, announced today the order for two new 200hp UHD ROV systems from specialist subsea service company DOF Subsea. In addition, two original UHDs delivered to DOF Subsea in 2006 will be upgraded to the advanced UHD Gen II design, providing enhanced capabilities and performance. Deliveries of the 4,000 meter rated UHDs are scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of 2010.
This order reflects a continued commitment between DOF Subsea and Schilling Robotics for the supply of advanced, high-performance, ultra-heavy-duty, work-class ROV systems. The UHDs feature Schilling's unique power management system, remote diagnostics, and advanced automatic piloting modes that deliver superior operational stability and precise control. Based on integrated sub-systems, the UHD reduces complexity, increases efficiency, and lowers the cost of owning and operating an ROV from day one.
The exceptional performance of the UHDs, paired with Schilling's ability to provide comprehensive customer support in all of the major offshore oil and gas regions of the world will help enable DOF Subsea's growth in international markets. "We are very pleased that DOF Subsea has once again selected Schilling UHDs to expand their fleet. Our ongoing commitment to providing the most reliable ROV systems coupled with industry leading global support are core philosophies that ensure our customers' success," says Tyler Schilling, chief executive officer for Schilling Robotics.
