US-based oilfield products company Forum Energy Technologies has received an order to supply three remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for New Orient Marine’s multi-purpose ice-class vessel, which is currently under construction in Singapore.

Two Perry XLX 200 horsepower, 4,000m Work Class ROV systems and one Sub-Atlantic Comanche 3,000m Observation Class ROV are scheduled for delivery to New Orient this year.

In addition, operation and maintenance training will be provided for New Orient’s personnel, as well as on-board support at the time of the ROV mobilisation.

"The award demonstrates Forum’s capability for working with our customers to provide solutions tailored to their specific needs."

New Orient’s new build ice-class vessel has been designed to operate in ambient temperatures as low as minus 30°C.

Initially, the vessel’s project will involve subsea intervention, inspection, maintenance and underwater welding of existing gas pipeline systems.

Forum Energy Technologies chairman and CEO Cris Gaut said: “The award demonstrates Forum’s capability for working with our customers to provide solutions tailored to their specific needs.
