Ashtead, SeaBotix Seal Deal at OTC 2014

Ashtead Technology has announced a distributor agreement with SeaBotix Inc for the sale and exclusive global rental of its miniROV systems at OTC in Houston.

The agreement with SeaBotix, the world-leading manufacturer of miniROV systems, was announced at the 2014 Offshore Technology Conference Wednesday, and includes sales representation in the UK, Gulf of Mexico and Mexico. The deal also allows Ashtead to deliver dedicated after-sales support and product training from its facilities in Aberdeen and Houston.

Ashtead Technology, which is headquartered in Aberdeen with bases in Singapore and Houston, is a fully integrated international equipment solutions specialist, offering rental equipment, equipment sales, calibration, repair and maintenance, offshore personnel and custom engineered solutions.

As part of the agreement Ashtead has been appointed as the exclusive global rental agent for SeaBotix systems and has invested in SeaBotix vLBV300 and LBV150-4 ROV systems for both rental and demonstration purposes.

The vLBV300 is the latest in highly capable vectored ROVs.  Weighing only 40lbs, the vLBV300 features powerful, variable, vector thruster configuration, optimised mechanical design, a flexible and stable platform, a strong ultra-low drag tether and an intuitive control system. The entire system is easily transportable and can be quickly configured and deployed. These features make the ROV ideal for offshore inspection work, near-shore survey and environmental monitoring.

The streamlined LBV150-4 inshore miniROV which is 150m depth rated, comes complete with a 150m tether on a hand reel and an integrated control console providing a well-rounded system that is simple to setup and operate.

The deal is the latest in a number of contracts with niche product suppliers to further secure Ashtead’s position as a leading provider of state-of-the-art subsea equipment on both a sale and rental basis.
