AL-KHOBAR, Saudi Arabia – Zamil Mermaid Offshore Services has contracted three Saab Seaeye Panther XT Plus ROVs for a seven-year inspection and repair contract for Saudi Aramco.

According to Zamil Mermaid’s operations manager, Neil Howie, the Panther XT offers a small footprint and an ability to work easily in the 2-knot shallow water currents prevalent offshore Saudi Arabia. Additionally, this range is said to handle 90% of tasks normally conducted by a hydraulic work-class ROV.

The three ROVs will perform light construction, inspection, and surveying.
