Global oil and gas subsea construction specialist Ceona has awarded a five-year contract worth more than £45million to independent ROV provider ROVOP.The contract will see ROVOP provide hydraulic, work-class ROV services on board Ceona’s fleet of new, purpose-built deepwater pipelay and construction vessels including the Ceona Amazon and the Polar Onyx.

As a result of this contract, ROVOP is creating 50 new jobs further underlining the company’s fast-evolving track record for delivering advanced ROV expertise and equipment, which is underpinned by its high-value quality of service and dedicated team of experienced personnel.

ROVOP will deploy hydraulic work-class ROV systems, manufactured by FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics, from its growing fleet of modern ROVs. These HD ROVs represent the most technologically-advanced ROV systems available in the market, including a modular design that significantly improves repair and maintenance times, as well as providing a range of “auto-pilot” style functions that improve safety and efficiency.

Ceona's Polar Onyx and Amazon vessels are due to come into service in March 2014 and January 2015 respectively.

Based on a drill-ship design, the Ceona Amazon boasts exceptional sea-keeping characteristics making it ideal for operations in remote and challenging locations. The multi-layer vessel, which is SPS compliant and equipped with a DP2 system, is a large, state-of-the-art, multi-functional, dynamically-positioned, pipelay and construction vessel.

The vessel is capable of laying rigid pipelines, flexible pipelines and umbilicals as well as installing large, subsea structures using one or both of its two compensated masthead cranes in tandem-lift mode to 3,000 meters water depth. The vessel does not require a spool base to support its operations and can be remotely operated, making it extremely well suited to overall field development.

Ceona’s high-capacity Polar Onyx is designed for operations in harsh conditions and deep waters, with a length of 130 meters and a 25 meter beam. The vessel, which is being built to the highest standard for dynamic positioning, DP3, and is equipped with a 250t AHC offshore crane, is designed to operate in the SURF (subsea, umbilicals, risers and flowlines), construction, and inspection repair and maintenance markets.

With capacity for flexible pipe loads below deck and on main deck, the Polar Oynx is being equipped with a 275t vertical lay system above a moonpool which is capable of installing flexible pipe and umbilicals to 3,000 meters water depth.
