Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (FET) has secured an order from DOF Subsea to supply two of its improved 200HP Perry XLX-C work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

The advanced ROVs will add fresh capability to the DOF Subsea fleet and can pave the way for aged asset renewals with a new and improved class of ROV.

The systems will be manufactured at FET’s UK facility at Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire, UK, and will be delivered in the second half of 2021.

Mark Ainsworth, Forum Subsea Technologies customer account manager, said: “We are delighted to have contracted these ROVs with DOF Subsea, adding to the vast fleet of Perry ROVs under their ownership in a deal which further strengthens our long-standing partnership. “It is a testament to the whole FET team that we continue to win new build ROV contracts in such a challenging marketplace, and that new design initiatives such as this one are able to be driven as we continue to provide 24 hour technical support and swift critical spares provisions to a growing global portfolio.”

Ingve Osberg, DOF Subsea Group Asset Manager, said: “DOF Subsea decided to increase the ROV fleet with another 2 XLX-C systems, based on the performance and capabilities of these WROV’s and the innovative solutions to meet our client’s demands that FET brings to the table.

“Having a fleet majority of FET Perry ROVs allows us to maximise standardisation of ROV equipment and spares for flexible use in all regions. We can also readily find qualified personnel with experience of ICE control systems, and are able to be provided with 24 hour support in all of the DOF ROV operational regions.

“We have more than 20 years’ experience working with FET people and equipment and rely on the quality of the deliverables and support that this long-standing relationship brings us as a key customer.”
