Is it possible to safely and efficiently reimagine 175 square feet of equipment on a rig/vessel deck into 52 square feet?
How does a team collaborate to create, qualify, and test a software program to function valves at 15,000 psi while submerged 10,000 feet under water?
Oceaneering’s ROV Workover Control System (RWOCS) is a journey of innovation, new technology, collaboration, and breaking the barriers of traditional operational methods to provide a system that is safer, more efficient, and cost effective.
Albert Einstein said, “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity,” and RWOCS is no exception. Through perseverance and dedication, the Oceaneering Team conquered challenges and obstacles to revolutionize how intervention, workover, and control operations are planned and executed.
