Bluestream Boost Fleet of Saab Seaeye ROVs
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.
