The Tech

While Forum continues to expand its product line by acquisition, it also is busy developing new products internally. Recent additions to FET’s ever-expanding Subsea Technologies’ product portfolio include these three:

Perry XLX ROVs

The next generation Perry Work Class ROVs offers the industry one of the most robust, reliable and dependable ROVs in the industry. These new extremely powerful ROVs can operate to depths of 4000m supported by a payload of 250 kilograms and can be deployed in demanding environments, which make it ideal for deep-water operations that require significant power to lift, position and install subsea field equipment. Also, the XLX can be outfitted with many subsea Tooling applications to handle most any underwater application.

Perry T1200 Trencher

The Perry T1200 Trencher is a heavy trenching trenching system that can produce a trench to a depth of three meters in all seabed conditions, from sand to stiff clays. Capable of deploying non-conducting water jetting tools with backwash and educator debris clearance systems, this cable and pipe burial ROV can carry an optional backfill and pipe following tool over long stretches.

Blowout Preventer Actuation Tool (BOP AT)

This tool is designed to be operated by a Work-Class ROV with speed and accuracy to close a blowout preventer remotely, delivering over 300 liters of fluid per minute at pressures up to 7500psi.  It fully actuates most BOPs in under 45 seconds, which safely and effectively seals the wellbore.
