HOUSTON -- (Business Wire)
Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) announced today the signing
of sale contracts with Helix Energy Solutions Group’s Canyon Offshore
subsea robotics business unit. Under the contracts, Forum will supply to
Canyon Offshore a PerryTM XT1500 Trenching system and two
PerryTM XLX 200HP Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) systems.
The XT1500 is based on proven technology from previous trenching
systems, particularly Forum’s T750 and, most recently, the T1200 that
Forum supplied to Canyon Offshore in 2012. The XT1500 has extra
electro-hydraulic power enabling a wider array of burial configurations,
and more tooling packages (including a precutting tool) to provide
higher burial performance. The vehicle will be capable of accepting a
pipeline burial package and dredge eductor, for burying product in stiff
soil and compacted sands. The XT1500 is a culmination of Forum’s
research initiatives and close working relationship with Canyon
Offshore. Forum will also provide support during the mobilization
onboard Canyon’s vessel and during the sea trials to ensure seamless
delivery to market in the same manner as the T1200. The XT1500 Trenching
system is scheduled for delivery in early 2014, and will support Canyon
Offshore’s subsea burial operations in both oil & gas and renewable
The PerryTM XLX Generation 2 (G2) 200 horsepower ROV systems
will be supplied complete with Forum’s Dynacon Launch & Recovery Systems
and with tooling packages. Both XLX ROV systems are scheduled for
delivery in 2013.
