Sub-Atlantic Secures Second ROV Deal with AALEA

ROV manufacturer Sub-Atlantic has won a second contract with Italian subsea services provider AALEA.

As part of the contract, Sub-Atlantic will supply AALEA with a Tomahawk remotely operated vehicle system. Equipped with survey and data collecting capabilities, the Tomahawk is the second system of its kind that Sub-Atlantic has provided for AALEA. The first successfully completed a 60 mile pipeline survey in the Mediterranean Sea between Sicily and the Italian mainland.

Ryan Lumsden, global product director at Sub-Atlantic, commented in a company statement:

“Securing repeat business from AALEA underlines the ROV’s high capability and performance. This is a great example of an electric observation class vehicle completing work normally associated with a hydraulic work-class vehicle. The reduced footprint combined with the cost effectiveness of a smaller system reinforces what can be achieved with an observation class system which is focused and optimised for a particular task. However, this does not limit its capability. For many operators, a major plus of our ROVs is that they can be loaded with a wide selection of sensors and tools to perform inspection, survey and light intervention tasks. AALEA is an innovative company which drives our Tomahawk system to a new level and we look forward to building on this and our working relationship with them.”

The latest Tomahawk ROV for AALEA will be manufactured at Sub-Atlantic’s manufacturing base in Kirkbymoorside, Yorkshire, and is due to be delivered in 3Q 2015.
