Right now, 1,100 work-class ROVs worldwide are doing their work underwater. They’re used for various tasks, such as repairs and maintenance, trench digging, drilling and building constructions such as subsea trees near drilling wells. Because these activities are taking place at increasingly great depths, ROV manufacturers face the challenge of coming up with innovative solutions. Replacing existing cables is a compelling option.
MD Jacob Olie on the challenges faced by a solution-driven cable manufacturer.
One year ago, Jacob Olie was appointed as the new managing director of DeRegt Marine Cables. This was a logical step in his career, which has seen him in multiple positions throughout Schlumberger in several countries. Today, one year and two months after his appointment, the former marine cable manufacturer has reprofiled itself as cable solution company.
Since our clients are going deeper than even before, we develop ROV umbilical and tether cables that are lighter and stronger, making them a dependable connection for all subsea activities. We can design cables for most standard ROVs and we are able to develop systems for new applications based on our clients’ specifications. Our cost-efficient subsea cable solutions for work class ROV’s are designed to deliver reliability and performance under the most extreme circumstances.
