Forum Energy Technologies contracts with Global Marine Systems to supply a PerryTM XT 600 Trenching System.

The XT 600 Trenching System is scheduled for delivery in 2013. It will be installed in the Global Marine vessel the Cable Retriever, based in the Philippines, and will replace the T205 trencher that was previously supplied by Forum/Perry in 2000.

The trenching system is to come complete with Launch & Recovery System and special tooling. The trencher provides three meter ROV burial capability on the ocean floor. Also included in the scope of supply is operation and maintenance training for Global Marine's personnel, and support during the first mobilization onboard their vessel and during the sea trials.

Forum Subsea Technologies is a product line of Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. headquartered in Houston, Texas. 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.
