At the end of 2007, Kystdesign celebrated the delivery of the 10th ROV to DeepOcean. With the delivery of Supporter 05 & 06, DeepOcean has 4 Installer vehicles and 6 Supporter vehicles from Kystdesign in operation.
"The Supporter ROV is very stable and reliable to operate. Manoeuvring is simple with the ROV's accurate auto-functions. Operational reliability is extremely good. During the last 16 months of operations, I can't remember the last time I had to perform any repairs. Installing and interfacing project-related equipment in the ROV is very simple, as all functions are easily accessible. All hydraulic connections are easy to reach at the front and can be isolated while working to avoid oil spill. The electronic POD has good access,and has plenty of internal space and numerous pre-defined and configurable connection options," says a DeepOcean ROV supervisor onboard the Normand Flower.
