Helix Energy Solutions Group, Inc., announced its robotics division has entered into a three-year charter agreement with two years of options for the DP2 offshore support vessel Glomar Wave for work on a range of opportunities in both the offshore renewables and oil and gas sectors.

Helix Robotics Solutions' Glomar Wave, a DP2 66.4-meter multi-role vessel, is expected to operate across energy sectors supporting Helix clients in a variety of roles.

The purpose-built vessel, equipped with a 25Te crane, can be configured with one or two remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV) and Helix’s new in-house designed and custom-built IROV boulder and debris clearance tool.

The Glomar Wave is able to provide services such as site clearance (UXO identification and disposal/Boulder removal), subsea ROV asset inspection and pipeline/cable survey, accommodation SPS 60 (in combination with walk to work gangway system) and site survey, Helix said.

Subsea vehicles are the workhorses of subsea exploration, and in this edition MTR explores the technologies and technique that are helping to deliver increased presence and improved quality and speed of data delivery from the world’s waterways.
