Phoenix International Continues ROV Fleet Expansion

Schilling Robotics will supply Phoenix International with three additional UHD ROV systems in 2007 and 2008. All three systems will feature 200-shp power and will be rated for 4000-meter operation. The systems will include Schilling’s extended excursion XE TMS and are slated for use by Phoenix’s Houston-based Subsea Projects Group for deepwater operations.

Says Frank Sayle, general manager of the Phoenix International Subsea Projects Group, “Purchasing the additional UHD systems furthers our strategy of providing increasingly comprehensive services to our oil & gas customers in the Gulf of Mexico, and demonstrates our continued commitment to providing our clients with the latest in ROV technology.”

The three ROV systems will join two UHD systems delivered to Phoenix International in 2006. All five systems will be fully supported by Schilling Robotics’ regional office in Houston.
