Ennsub Delivers ROV Deployment Systems
Ennsub has completed the design and manufacture of two workclass remotely operated vehicle (WROV) deployment systems for ROVOP, due to be installed into a newbuild tier one pipelay vessel early in 2015.
A number of senior figures from the oil and gas industry were given an insight into Ennsub’s new DEEP 4000 system recently before visiting its new Teesside premises.
The demonstration showed the equipment’s capabilities, which includes a unique cable handling solution designed to maximize umbilical lifespan, particularly in ultra-deepwater and other high-fatigue applications such as active heave compensation. The system also has a high-speed electric winch with full active-heave compensation, semi-dipping extendable A-frame and transfer skidding system for large tool packages. A new control system and human machine interface (HMI) provides the client with a fully integrated and centralized operating station.
Ennsub’s integrated ROV launch and recovery solutions offer a next generation approach to ROV deployment, particularly in supporting top-tier subsea construction assets where reliability and performance are required.
“The equipment presently under delivery offers a number of novel solutions to many of the current problems experienced by the ROV operating community,” said managing director Scott Macknocher. “These include industry-leading umbilical handling, compact deck footprint, reduced hydraulic hosing and many enhanced control features which will have been designed in cooperation with experienced ROV operators and which will reflect the need for safety and reliable operation.”
