Forum seals Mojave ROV deal with Norwegian firm
Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. has delivered a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to ESEA Submarine AS to perform a variety of offshore roles, including inspection, survey and salvage work.
The powerful and compact 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.
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 Mr 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.”
