March 23, 2018 – Houston, Texas – Oceaneering International, Inc. (“Oceaneering”) will be recognized at the 2018 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) with a Spotlight on New Technology® Award for its E-ROV system.
This advanced system was selected based on its innovative technology, broad appeal to the industry, proven capabilities through full-scale application, and significant impact with benefits beyond existing technologies.
The E-ROV is a self-contained, battery-powered remotely operated vehicle system capable of operating for extended periods of time without being recovered to surface. Comprising an electric ROV, 4G connection buoy, and subsea cage, the system reduces cost and risk without the need for a surface vessel.
Roderick A. Larson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Oceaneering, stated, “We are honored to be recognized by the Offshore Technology Conference. Spotlight on New Technology highlights the latest and most advanced technologies that are leading our industry, and the E-ROV System is an example of how we are thinking what’s next to deliver safe and cost-effective technology solutions.”
Celebrating 50 years, OTC takes place 30 April to 3 May, 2018, in Houston, and the Spotlight on New Technology Awards will be presented on 30 April at 16:00 in the NRG Center Rotunda Lobby.
