Bowtech Products Ltd has announced that it has been awarded a contract by ROVOP to supply cameras and lights, which will equip two new ROV systems.

ROVOP has recently invested a further £4 million in two new vehicles as part of its planned expansion over the coming years; the first is a 3,000m rated, 150 horsepower work class Schilling HD ROV and the second a SAAB SeaEye Cougar XT ROV system.

The Schilling HD ROV follows an identical system, which was delivered in February 2013, for which Bowtech Products supplied a L3C-650-L colour tooling camera (with integral LED lights) and a LCC-700-L monochrome tooling camera, (also with integral LED lights).

The scope of supply for the new Schilling HD ROV system includes three of the latest 20,000 lumen high powered output LED-V-SERIES floodlights, six LED-R-7300 series lights, two L3C-650-L colour tooling cameras, a SURVEYOR-SD 36:1 colour zoom camera and the newly released EXPLORER PRO low light camera. The same suite of cameras will be integrated onto the SeaEye Cougar XT ROV system.

Bowtech Products has also supplied all of the associated cables, connectors and brackets for the cameras and lights.
Doug Middleton, operations director at ROVOP said: "These lights and cameras provide the optimum subsea performance and reliability, and we are delighted to continue working with Bowtech Products."
