SMD is pleased to announce a contract for supply of two Quantum XP construction class ROV systems to Hallin Marine. The two high specification systems include Quantum XP 200hp ROVs, Tophat TMSs and built in control consoles. Hallin have also ordered two SMD 12te Telescopic launch and recovery systems (LARS).
The vehicle systems are destined for permanent installation onboard Hallin's new compact semi-submersible vessel (CSS) Derwent. The CSS Derwent is designed with unique multi-hull form for greater sea keeping capabilities and to provide cost effective solutions in both subsea services and well intervention. The vessel and ROVs will be used in multiple subsea service roles including well intervention. The Quantum XP is SMD's flagship construction class ROV equipped with ROV DP and designed to undertake the most demanding construction, IRM and survey tasks.
Commenting on the award, Mark Collins, ROV business stream manager at SMD said: "Hallin have a substantial fleet of SMD ROV systems and are a very important customer. We are delighted with the award which continues to demonstrate Hallin's commitment to SMD Work Class ROV systems."
Commenting on the award, Mark Wood, ROV Operations Director at Hallin said: "The CSS Derwent will have the flexibility to undertake more operations in harsher conditions than similar size vessels. The Quantum ROV systems were chosen due to their performance, rugged build and flexibility".
