BelovEngenharia ordered a second Saab Seaeye Lynx ROV for its operations in Brazil’s vast oil fields.

The six thruster 1,500-meter-rated Lynx will be used for the inspection of oil lines, risers and jackets.

For line inspection, a Tritech digital precision altimeter has been fitted to maintain accurate offset from the seabed as the ROV follows the pipeline.

When undertaking jacket inspection, a fitted CDL fiber-optic gyro means there is no magnetic interference from the jacket structure whilst accurately tracking the ROV’s motion.

Along with the existing Lynx and a deep-rated falcon, the new ROV will work from both fixed rigs and ships.

Constantly moving the ROV system across and between rigs makes the Lynx system and its tether management cage suitable for the project, as it is particularly easy to relocate.

Operating the ROV from a cage reduces the influence of currents – even though its thruster power still allows precise maneuverability whilst swimming on its 250-meter excursion tether.

Other hi-spec equipment fitted to the system includes a Seaeye wide-angle low-light color camera, a range of Konsberg cameras, including a high definition low-light CDD camera, a color zoom camera and a high definition TV camera with fiber output.

A detachable tooling skid is also supplied together with a Gauntlet Plus four-function manipulator with a quick-change feature for fitting a cutter or rotary brush cleaner, and a CP contact probe also comes with the system.

With more than 200 billion barrels of reserves estimated in Brazil’s oil fields, the demand for powerful and intelligent ROVs that can work reliably in deep water operations will grow as the huge fields are developed.
