Triton Secures Australian ROV Contract
Total Marine Technologies has contracted subsea specialist Perry Slingsby Systems (PSS) to enhance its growing ROV fleet with their first state of the art Triton XLX ROV system.
The contract will see PSS supply a 3,000m Triton XLX system on an expedited delivery schedule to meet TMT's expanding operational requirements. The delivery time from contract to acceptance is less than three months, with delivery planned for August.
The system is equipped with ICE® net controls, heavy-weather launch and recovery system, plus a 650m excursion tether management unit for enhanced operational capability.
PSS, part of Aberdeen-based Triton Group, will provide interface and installation services from its Asia Pacific base in Singapore. The ROV will be deployed in TMT / Sapura's global operations and will be supported by PSS from its network of service centers in Aberdeen, Singapore, Houston and Brazil.
Triton's regional director for Asia Pacific, Bruce Lokay said, "We are pleased to welcome TMT as our newest regional client and we are happy to see that our investment in the Australasian region continues to offer dividends. PSS's strategy of providing local support capabilities was one of the key deciding factors for TMT.
"With our service centers based in strategic locations around the world, we are able to offer our clients a level of service and support that is unmatched in the industry. Additionally, from other Triton Group companies, we can offer our clients a complete and comprehensive package of fully integrated services, including subsea tooling, deepwater control systems, equipment rental and sales, geotechnical engineering and coring, as well as simulation and other technologies."
TMT's director Paul Colley said, "Our decision to purchase a Trition XLX system was in line with our vision to build the ROV operations capability and flexibility through providing best in class technology. The Triton XLX is an accepted industry benchmark for heavy workclass systems and it complements our in house Typhoon ROV design.
"This acquisition together with the pending Australian safety case approval for a Sapura DSV that will be operated by TMT and its alliance partners is a significant increase in the commitment and work scope capacity TMT can now offer our Australian client base.
"We look forward to a long and strategic relationship with PSS as TMT move to become an industry leading, Australian based, manufacturer / operator of ROV and subsea tooling systems for the APAC region."
