The systems will be built by SMD Hydrovision (SMDH) at their Turbinia works on the river Tyne in Newcastle, UK. The Centurion Qx is an evolution of the successful Subsea 7 designed and built Centurion work class series. The Centurion Qx incorporates a number of key components used on SMDH's proven Q-Series range of ROV's including DVECS distributed control and the latest generation Curvetech thrusters.
This build program is in addition to that announced by i-Tech in May of this year. From the new build ROV program announced today i-Tech has already secured long term commitments for a number of systems, where they will work in both Equatorial Guinea and Brazil further consolidating i-Tech's leadership position in providing ROV systems in these countries.
i-Tech's Managing Director, Neil Milne, commented, "We are delighted to be able to announce a second major build program within a year of i-Tech's formation. We are particularly pleased that we have already secured long term work for a number of these second phase systems and have a large number of potential long term opportunities where the few remaining uncommitted systems will undoubtedly be deployed".
