Bluestream’s Cougar XT completes final test in Den Helder port

Bluestream has taken delivery of the third of four ROVs ordered from Saab Seaeye in the last twelve months. Their new 2,000 meter-rated Cougar XT is the second of this model to be added to the 11 strong ROV fleet operated by the Netherlands-based Offshore services company.

Bluestream’s model comes with an array of cameras, sonar, five-function manipulator and hydraulic disk cutter. A detachable bare skid is also supplied ready for different tooling options.

Managing director, Rolf de Vries explained, “Tooling options are a vital resource for undertaking a wide number of tasks, ranging from drill support, HP cleaning, grinding, salvage, intervention and non-destructive testing - to pipeline survey work, pipe-tracking, IRM, and tailor made solutions.”

Bluestream tooling solutions were the first to adapt a Saab Seaeye Surveyor ROV for Christmas Treeinstallation work. Their solution included an innovative torque tool that could operate delicate needle valves within torque tolerances without needing the dexterity of a diver’s hand.
