Helix Buy Three Forum ROV's

Press Release
Monday, March 18, 2013

Forum Energy Technologies signs contract to sell a large trenching ROV and 2 work-class ROVs to Helix Energy.

Forum's sale contracts are with Helix Energy Solutions Group’s Canyon Offshore subsea robotics business unit. Under the contracts, Forum will supply to Canyon Offshore a PerryTM XT1500 Trenching system and two PerryTM XLX 200HP Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) systems.

The XT1500 is based on proven technology from previous trenching systems, particularly Forum’s T750 and, most recently, the T1200 that Forum supplied to Canyon Offshore in 2012. The XT1500 has extra electro-hydraulic power enabling a wider array of burial configurations, and more tooling packages (including a precutting tool) to provide higher burial performance.

The vehicle will be capable of accepting a pipeline burial package and dredge eductor, for burying product in stiff soil and compacted sands. The XT1500 is a culmination of Forum’s research initiatives and close working relationship with Canyon Offshore. Forum will also provide support during the mobilization onboard Canyon’s vessel and during the sea trials to ensure seamless delivery to market in the same manner as the T1200.

The XT1500 Trenching system is scheduled for delivery in early 2014, and will support Canyon Offshore’s subsea burial operations in both oil & gas and renewable energy operations.

The PerryTM XLX Generation 2 (G2) 200 horsepower ROV systems will be supplied complete with Forum’s Dynacon Launch & Recovery Systems and with tooling packages. Both XLX ROV systems are scheduled for delivery in 2013.
