SINGAPORE -- Diving contractor Seatrax Singapore has commissioned Sub-Atlantic Asia to supply an electric work-class ROV to support its subsea operations in the Asia/Pacific region.

According to Sub-Atlantic, the Comanche ROV was selected for its reliability, high power to weight ratio, hydraulic systems, and its ability to perform tasks such as torque tool operations, drill support, and survey projects.

Sub-Atlantic will supply a Zone 2-certified, 2000-m (6,561 ft) rated Comanche system, with delivery scheduled for December.

The ROV will be equipped with a 3,000-m (9,842 ft) rated LARS, type 3B tether management system with 600 m (1,968 ft) of tether, a hydraulic power pack, four function manipulators, survey sensors, and multiple camera and sensor interfaces.

According to Sub-Atlantic, the package will occupy less deck space than conventional drill support ROVs.

On delivery, the ROV will be rigged up to perform client trials and testing of torque tools at Sub-Atlantic’s Asia/Pacific base before deployment on Seatrax Singapore’s projects.
