Velocious Strengthens Subsea Services with Mock ROV

press release
Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Velocious Australia has added to its portfolio of innovative subsea engineering and remote technology services through the development of a new Mock ROV.

 

Most recently used to test tools for Chevron’s flagship Gorgon project off North West WA, the Mock ROV has the capability to replicate every function an ROV would carry out in a subsea environment to ensure safety and operational integrity. Unlike most industry Mock ROVs, the Velocious Mock ROV has been designed and can be configured to any industry-standard workclass ROV, including the six most widely used ROVs in subsea construction. This enables the Perth-based subsea engineering and remote technology company to tailor its services to its clients’ varying specifications and demands.

 

Velocious Chief Executive Brett Silich said the Mock ROV was an important addition to the existing range of Velocious services. “Since its formation in 2007, Velocious’s focus has been on providing innovative subsea engineering solutions tailored to client requirements,” he said. “We have successfully developed a range of services, including subsea intervention tooling, project management, detailed design, fabrication and the provision of skilled personnel.

 

“The Mock ROV fills an important gap, enabling Velocious to deliver complete and independent end-to-end solutions for System Integration Testing of subsea hardware.”

 

The first unit was the culmination of four months research and development and over $500,000 of investment. It incorporates hydraulic power and controls, lights, cameras and manipulators, replicating every feature of a subsea ROV. The Mock ROV can be stored and transported in a custom built container, which enables it to be easily packaged and transported to even the most remote locations across the Asia-Pacific region.   

 

Over the past six years Velocious personnel have successfully executed the full scope of System Integration Testing for tooling and permanent hardware on projects such as Chevron's Gorgon, BHP's Stybarrow and Pyrenees, Apache's Van Gogh and Woodside's Enfield, Vincent and PoG fields mainly throughout  Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
