The world’s first* commercial onshore controlled ROV operations commenced at IKM Subsea headquarters in Bryne Norway 12th June.

In the near future up to 3 Work class ROVs and 1 Observation ROV on Statoil’s Snorre B and Visund installations will be controlled from IKM Subsea’s onshore control center. One of the Work Class ROVs (RROV) has been designed and engineered to be permanently based on the seabed and will only be brought to surface for periodic maintenance.

The Company Acceptance Test (CAT) with Statoil was completed on 12th of June with the ROV at Snorre B and the dual control center is now up and running.

We foresee a potential significant cost saving for our clients with less POB and increasing operational time offshore for the ROVs. With this setup and proven technology in place we see this as the first of many stepping stones into the future of ROV technology for IKM Subsea. Comments Hans Fjellanger Business Development Manager at IKM Subsea.

* As far as IKM Subsea knows.
