Bowtech Products Ltd. announced that it has been awarded a contract by ROVOP to supply cameras and lights, which will equip two new ROV systems.

ROVOP recently invested a further £4 million in two new vehicles as part of their planned expansion over the coming years; the first is a 3,000m rated, 150 horsepower work class Schilling HD ROV and the second a SAAB SeaEye Cougar XT ROV system, which has been selected by the company for its powerful yet compact features.

The Schilling HD ROV follows an identical system, which was delivered in February 2013, for which Bowtech Products supplied a L3C-650-L colour tooling camera (with integral LED lights) and a LCC-700-L monochrome tooling camera, (also with integral LED lights).

The scope of supply for the new Schilling HD ROV system includes three of the latest 20,000 lumen high powered output LED-V-SERIES floodlights, six LED-R-7300 series lights, two L3C-650-L colour tooling cameras, a SURVEYOR-SD 36:1 colour zoom camera and the newly released EXPLORER PRO low light camera. The same suite of cameras will be integrated onto the SeaEye Cougar XT ROV system.

Bowtech Products has also supplied all of the associated cables, connectors and brackets for the cameras and lights.

This is the third major award to Bowtech Products for the supply of cameras and lights to new ROV fleets in 2013. This latest contract with ROVOP together with existing heads of agreements already secured with Bibby Remote Intervention Limited and Reach Subsea AS of Norway, amount to GBP 1.2 million of cameras and lights through to 2017.
