Sonsub And Seateam Team To Provide ROV And Survey Services
Sonsub International Ltd. has announced the formation of a worldwide cooperative agreement with The Seateam Group, covering the provision of totally integrated remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and survey services. The agreement is designed to provide industry with access to the technical and innovative capabilities of Sonsub's global intervention services, coupled with Seateam's extensive survey capabilities, including the company's Dolphin data capture and management system.
Both companies have reportedly mobilized onboard STM Markab to support a project in the North Sea off the Norwegian coast. Sonsub will deploy an ROV through the vessel's new moonpool, which is an innovative new design aimed at increasing the vessel's all-weather capabilities. A second, fully-integrated ROV and survey spread onboard STM Atria was scheduled to be mobilized in April to support inspection and construction projects on the northwest European continental shelf.
Seateam offers a wide range of survey support services covering offshore exploration, construction and inspection, including digital and analog site investigations, ROV and analog route surveys, ROV and analog pipeline inspections and construction support.
Sonsub develops and applies solutions for subsea and hazardous environments, providing environmental remediation, cable and pipeline burial, remote systems engineering, subsea production systems and ROVs. The company also recently contracted with McDermott Subsea Contractors Ltd. in the U.K. to provide ROV services to support British Petroleum's project off the West coast of Shetland. Sonsub will reportedly mobilize two, 100-hp Triton Advanced Remotely Operated Work Systems (AROWS) and one 75-hp ROV to complete the job. For more information on Sonsub International Ltd.
