ROV Locator on Display in 'Titanic' Museum

Press Release
Monday, September 03, 2012

Forum Energy Technologies announce the placement of a Sub-Atlantic Mohawk™ observation class ROV at the 'Titanic' Belfast Museum.

Forum Subsea Technologies, a business line of Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. of Houston, Texas, has placed on permanent display a Sub-Atlantic Mohawk™ observation class remotely operated vehicle (ROV) at the Titanic Belfast Museum to help tell the story of the RMS Titanic. The newly opened Titanic Belfast Museum, the world's largest Titanic visitor attraction, is located in the heart of Belfast.

In 1985, Robert Ballard, Jean-Louis Michel and their French-American team finally located the wreckage of one of the most famous and tragic ships in history. The discovery was made possible due to the development of ARGO-Jason, a remotely operated system to locate and videotape underwater objects. The ARGO-Jason was primitive by today's standards and was towed on a sled underwater by a ship.

In contrast, the fully electric Mohawk ROV is a compact, high-performance ROV system which can be used for a variety of underwater tasks including observation, survey, NDT inspections and other mission tasks. Those black and white images transmitted by ARGO back in 1985 have been replaced by full color High Definition images taken by multiple cameras and sensor interfaces. The Mohawk features: auto-heading and depth, AC propulsion thrusters, hydraulic or electric manipulators and is capable of several tooling skid options.

Forum Subsea Technologies is a business line of Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. Their ROV product line ranges from electric observation class ROVs to large hydraulic work-class vehicles used for inspection, survey and deep-water construction, as well as other remote intervention technologies and services.
