(Deep Ocean Engineering Inc.
The company designs, engineers, manufactures and markets ROVs
, ATVs and snowmobiles, besides related parts, garments and accessories under the Arctic Cat and Motorfist brand.
Technology continues to advance, particularly in the Gulf of Mexico market where post-Macondo changes such as API Standard 53 have brought new requirements for ROV

Mike decided that he needed a trailer not only to transport the ROVs
to jobs but to act as a mobile on-site office.
The award will see i-Tech providing two Centurion QX work-class ROVs
and under water positioning and survey services onboard the vessel, for a five year, term with an option to extend for a similar term.
The ODIM LARS units, due for delivery in the first and in the second quarter of 2011, respectively, will handle ROVs
being used in water depths down to 4,000 m, Odim said.
Fuelled by the search for oil in ever deeper waters, the world of ROVs
is breaking new ground to develop ever more sophisticated vehicles and as the demand for ROVs
increases, so does the need for ROV
pilots and technicians.
According to Chris Nicholson, founder of an ROV
firm, Deep Sea Systems International in Falmouth, Mass.
