CENTURION SUBSEA SERVICES PROVIDES INNOVATIVE ROV MANIPULATOR TECHNOLOGY UPGRADE PACKAGES
Scope: Offshore project managers are often met with the issue of significant ROV Manipulator repair or replacement costs Due to natural wear and tear caused by subsea environmental conditions.. To combat these issues, Centurion Subsea Services set out to deliver innovative upgrade packages forcritical 7-function rate-controlled manipulators.
Outcome: Centurion Subsea Services’ basic manipulator upgrade package includes an 8 Station compact proportional Intelligent Valve Pack (IVP), compact touch screen Manipulator Controller (MC) with Bluetooth or hard-wired gaming control and optional seven function Pendant control, which is familiar to all ROV pilots. The new Pendant is USB configured which will allow it to be remotely mounted on the pilot’s console or chair. Targeted at Atlas, Orion & Conan manipulator arms, the upgrade offers an extremely cost-efficient solution to provide smooth and accurate proportional control of heavier duty manipulators. The use of this new solution could in turn save potential damage to the T4 and the resulting expensive repairs.
