DAVIS —Schilling Robotics, experts in subsea systems, announced Jan. 31 the delivery of a new HD ROV system to underwater technology firm Seabed. The order was for HD 23, which is a 150hp, 4,000m-rated ROV system and was delivered in December 2011.
“We are very proud to have added Seabed AS to our expanding customer portfolio. They are a discerning and innovative company, and we are delighted that they have chosen to expand their fleet with our products,” says Tyler Schilling, chief executive officer for Schilling Robotics.
The HD is a work-class ROV system that provides flexibility for construction, intervention, and IMR applications. Increased reliability and availability is inherent due to the integrated design philosophy for all major sub-systems. This drives a significant reduction in components, enables modular maintenance, and significantly reduces major component replacement timeframes.
The exceptional reliability, performance, and configurability of the HD make it an ideal solution for Seabed. Hans Martin Gravdal, CEO for Seabed said, “With our experience and expertise, combined with ultra modern vessels, the HD ROV system will complement and enhance our capabilities as a prominent subsea operations company.
Schilling Robotics is a leading global, deep-ocean robotics company founded in 1985. Schilling is headquartered in Davis, has a fabrication shop in Shingle Springs and regional offices in Texas, Aberdeen, Scotland, and Singapore.
