ABERDEEN, UK -- Integrated Subsea Services has taken delivery of four newly launched Triton XLX ROVs from Perry Slingsby Systems for £10 million ($20 million).

The ROVs feature DP technology to reduce pilot intervention and to allow navigation data to direct the ROV. Perry says this is a first for ROV application. The vessels also have the new Integrated Controls Engine real-time controls system.

Able to display up to six graphic and six video windows simultaneously, the XLX can connect up to 24 input signals. It also incorporates for the first time touch screen technology and the most recent multi-image display system for pilot interface.

"The XLX ROV gives ISS a leading role in moving the ROV industry to the next level," says David Rhodes, ISS ROV operations manager. "We chose this system for its advanced features and diagnostics, configured for both construction and survey applications, as built by the leading ROV manufacturer."
