The Quasar is the second of its kind to be ordered by PTSC G&S, nearly a decade after the first ROV was purchased.
Quasar II is a versatile all-around performer capable of survey, construction, and drill support operations. Once delivered to the oilfields in South East Asia, it will work alongside the existing SMD ROV, performing a range of operations, at depths of up to 2500 m.
PTSC G&S have commissioned a high specification of options to compliment the Quasar II, including the most powerful tooling capabilities, a survey pod, and the latest instruments. The vehicle offers class-leading performance, tooling, instrument space and easy access for maintenance. The machine will also be mated with an SMD compact Tether Management System (TMS).
The team at SMD will also provide training and mobilisation support. The training will employ the use of SMD’s simulator to allow ROV operators to train and rehearse for a range of subsea scenarios before launching and piloting the ROV for real.
