Saipem America Introduces Innovator Leviathan

Saipem America introduces its most powerful heavy work class ROV to date the new 250hp Innovator LEVIATHAN. Delivering unsurpassed power through seven (7) hydraulic thrusters, the Innovator LEVIATHAN is a dominant performance workhorse in the industry. The 250hp dual-shaft electric motor powers four 17" horizontal thrusters capable of more than 1,200 lbs of thrust each and three 15" vertical thrusters providing a total of 3,450lbf of horizontal thrust. Thruster control for harsh operating conditions is provided by way of mechanical thruster repositioning to give 30 , 45 or 60 thrust angle with respect to the fore-aft vehicle axis, and the vertical thrusters will have pitch and roll control.

Acting as a stable work platform for all of Saipem America's future subsea intervention and support systems, the Innovator LEVIATHAN is engineered to operate continuously despite high current or extended dive conditions - aiming to increase the operability to 4.5 knots current. Additionally, the Innovator LEVIATHAN has many other operational and control features serving to minimize the amount of costly subsea downtime and equipment necessary for deepwater operations, while improving performance, flexibility, and reliability of the critical operational components; providing operators and installation contractors the vast flexibility they need in an ROV to perform complicated, uninterrupted deepwater operations at a significant cost savings.

The first Innovator LEVIATHAN will be performing a wide range of heavy-duty subsea well intervention, installation and construction work for a major operator on a long-term project in the Gulf of Mexico.
