Posted on 28.03.2006 - 02:17 EST in ROV NEWS by Rons_ROV_Links

SMD HydrauvisionSMDH are pleased to announce delivery of Quantum 2 construction class ROV to European Contract Hire.  The system is configured for pipe lay plough support and general construction tasks and will be operated by CTC Marine Projects.  The 2000msw, 125shp vehicle incorporates the latest features including Curvetech intelligent valve packs and DVECS distributed control.

Associated deliverables include SMDH’s new 3500m 12Te umbilical winch accompanied by a 175kW HPU (Hydraulic Power Unit).  The upgrade modification of an existing SMDH 10Te A-Frame was also part of the scope of supply.

It was permissible for this project to be fast tracked and system delivery took just 16 weeks from receipt of order.  This schedule was achieved even with the project running through the Christmas holiday! 

CTC retain a further option for inclusion of a SMDH Standard TMS (Tether Management System) which is expected to be fitted to the system in the near future.
