Canyon ROV Rescues Manned Submersible

Wednesday, August 21, 2002
Canyon Offshore has successfully rescued a diver trapped in a manned submersible in 1800 ft. of water in the Gulf of Mexico. The submersible was attempting to perform intervention tasks on a client’s subsea well when the tool seized at the work site. The M/V Merlin, outfitted with a TRITON XL work class ROV, immediately deployed to the site to assist with the recovery. The ROV dove to 1800 ft., releasing the tool and the submersible approximately five minutes after reaching the immobilized unit. The manned submersible and its pilot, who had been trapped for approximately ten hours prior to being released, were safely recovered shortly thereafter. John Edwards, CEO of Canyon Offshore stated, “We are extremely pleased that we could intervene in this dangerous situation, using our ROV technology to rescue the pilot and the submersible.”
