Perry Slingsby Systems (PSS) in the UK has secured an order from Rovtech for a Tether Management System (TMS) for delivery early April. The TMS will be used in conjunction with Spartan 7, which has been awarded a two year contract for a drill support project commencing in May.
This takes the Rovtech total to 9 PSS-built WROVs launched from PSS built TMSs.
In addition, Rovtech have placed a contract with PSS for the upgrade of Spartan 3 to a 100hp vehicle. The order includes new buoyancy thrusters, giving enhanced payload and performance capability. The upgrades will be carried out when the ROV returns from Baku in June, on completion of its contract with Technip for the Shah Deniz project.
PSS will upgrade Rovtech’s 5 remaining 75hp Spartans to the same specification, once they become available from existing contracts. The upgrade work will be carried out in Aberdeen utilizing Rovtech personnel.
