The Seaeye Panther-XT is a development of the successful Seaeye Panther and Panther Plus ROVs.
The customisable Panther-XT is designed as the new Saab Seaeye benchmark for electric work ROVs and challenges heavier and more costly hydraulic vehicles, particularly where deck space is at a premium.
With fibre optic video and data multiplexer included, the vehicles power has been doubled by increasing the supplied voltage from 250 to 500 volts. Apart from improving handling this enables the Seaeye Panther-XT to accommodate a wider range of heavier duty tooling for work tasks including drill support, pipeline survey, salvage and IRM to depths of 1500 metres.
Typical Panther-XT applications include:
- Pre and post lay pipeline surveys
- Touch down monitoring
- Cable installation
- Drill support
- NDT inspections
- Salvage operations including:
- Torpedo recovery
- Support of distressed submarines with emergency life support pods (air transportable Seaeye Panther systems can be supplied for intervention and life support tasks in support of rapid response submarine rescue)
