“The Cougar is an ideal choice,” said RusselSmith CEO, Kayode Adeleke. “It is a powerful, highly manoeuvrable and capable ROV and we believe it will add a lot of value to our subsea operations.”

RusselSmith sees the Cougar meeting its current and projected subsea undertakings which include inspection, repairs, maintenance, light construction work and drill support.

“Its small footprint makes it easy to mobilise and operate from smaller vessels, bringing significant savings in terms of time and cost. This will be of great benefit to our customers,” declared Effiong Okwong, RusselSmith’s Director for Solutions & Market Development.

RusselSmith’s package from Saab Seaeye includes a tether management system (TMS) for the Cougar and an ‘A” frame launch and recovery system (LARS) upgraded to Zone II, together with a 20 ft combined control cabin and workshop.
