Underwater Technology Services (UTS), Singapore has purchased two ISE 7-function heavy duty manipulators and one 5-function heavy duty manipulator, together with ISE's control system ACE for its new Remotely Operated Driller's Tool (RODT).
The RODT is designed for drill ship support. Each 7-function ISE Magnum manipulator comes with a proportional control pack for adjustable pressure and flow control, as well as rotating jaws. The 5-function arm comes equipped with a larger jaw opening. All Magnums have a maximum lift capacity of 454 kgs and all equipment is rated to a depth of 3000 meters.
The RODT is the first ROV for the newly formed ROV division of UTS. Combining ISE's manipulator and control systems, together with the experience of Lynn Dates, UTS's ROV & Tooling Design Manager, the RODT will offer advanced functionality and reliable field supportable performance.
