Schilling Robotics, will supply Phoenix International with three additional Ultra Heavy Duty (UHD) ROV systems in 2007 and 2008. All three systems will feature 200-shp power and will be rated for 4000-meter operation. The systems will include Schillingâ€™s extended excursion (XE) Tether Management Systems
and are slated for use by Phoenixâ€™s Houston-based Subsea Projects Group for deepwater operations.
Frank Sayle, general manager of the Phoenix International Subsea Projects Group says, â€œPurchasing the additional UHD systems furthers our strategy of providing increasingly comprehensive services to our oil & gas customers in the Gulf of Mexico, and demonstrates our continued commitment to providing our clients with the latest in ROV technology.â€
The three ROV systems will join two UHD systems delivered to Phoenix International in 2006. All five systems will be fully supported by Schilling Roboticsâ€™ regional office in Houston.
