Brazil based Sistac have taken delivery of an SMD Atom 100hp 2000m rated Work Class Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV).  The Work Class ROV system will be mobilised during the fourth quarter of this year and will be used initially for survey and inspection duties but will provide Sistac with the capability to expand services in the future as a fully integrated tooling platform.


The Atom ultra-compact Work Class ROV is comparable in size to a large electric ROV but with the power to provide true Work Class capability. The system is suitable for drill support, IRM, survey and construction duties and is especially suited for vessels and rigs with limited deck space.


“We are delighted to have delivered a new Atom to Sistac,” said Michael Atkinson, SMD’s Sales Manager. “Sistac are a new customer for SMD, and although we have had many systems operating in Brazil for a number of years, this is the first contract award from a Brazilian customer.  We have also received very good feedback from operators using the Atom which has proven to be a reliable, robust and flexible work platform.”
