He explains why he chose the Lynx ROV in particular:
“It has the power to handle a wide range of work-class tooling, not usually possible in an ROV of its size, yet still has enough power left to go where you want, and do what is needed,” he says.
The Lynx – and deep-rated Falcon ROV, also ordered – will work from fixed rigs in and around jackets and semi-submersibles, where operationally quick and easy system re-location is important.
“The ROV system will be in a state of constant mobilisation as it will be moved from one side of a rig to another,” says André Weber Cameiro, who sees the Lynx system, with its tether management cage, as being particularly easy to move around.
The Lynx – more powerful than any ROV of its size.
