Canyon Offshore, subsea remote operated vehicle (ROV) operator, has mobilised two new UHD-III ROVs to their Grand Canyon II vessel. These new ROVs will enhance Canyon’s reputation for having robust and flexible systems which are ideal for subsea field work.
The Grand Canyon II is designed to perform a broad range of subsea operations, with DP3-class station keeping for work in severe weather conditions. It features a 250 t heave compensated crane, facilities to launch port and starboard side ROVs simultaneously. The vessel’s first project was for survey and trenching work in the UK. The UHD-IIIs were utilised continuously for a four week period, with only one hour of maintenance time.
