Forum Bags Mojave ROV Deal
Oilfield products company Forum Energy Technologies said it has sealed a contract to supply a Mojave remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for the Norwegian firm ESEA Marine.
Sub-Atlantic Mojave will also be used by ESEA Submarine’s sister company, ESEA Marine AS, which has customers that include fish farms, port authorities and insurance companies, said the international oilfield products company, serving the subsea, drilling, completion and production sectors of the oil and natural gas industry.
In addition, the Mojave will play a training role in helping ROV pilots to develop their skills.
Georg Stranden, general manager at ESEA Submarine, said, “We see opportunities in the Norwegian inshore market and found the Mojave suitable for the purpose because it is a truly mobile system which is very powerful for its size.”
ESEA Submarine AS was established during 2016 by Stranden, an industry veteran with more than 30 years’ experience of working with ROVs.
Malcolm Johnston, subsea vehicles sales manager, said, “The Mojave is a well-balanced vehicle that is highly-responsive and powerful for its size. It has a variety of tooling options which makes it an ideal fit for ESEA Submarine with the range of work it will be expected to perform.”
