LINKÖPING, Sweden – Naviera Tramarsa has ordered a new Cougar XT ROV from Saab Seaeye which should start operations offshore Peru in May.

It will join a Saab Seaeye Falcon, which Naviera Tramarsa has operated for 10 years.

The company’s main activity is the inspection of oil platforms off northern Peru for E&P company Savia Oeru. The Falcon has undertaken subsea visual inspections and other measurements.

It expects the Cougar XT to improve its ability to inspect, clean, and perform non-destructive testing.

The ROV will feature a high-definition enhanced monochrome camera and a Kongsberg color zoom camera, a Tritech Super SeaKing sonar, dual five-function manipulator, cleaning brush tool, CYGNUS ultrasound thickness gauge, and pipe cable tracker.
