Sonsub Inc. Operates LBV300 at 700ft

Recently Sonsub Inc. took delivery of the first of their two SeaBotix LBV300S-FO systems. Not wasting any time the first system was immediately put to work in the Gulf of Mexico.

Approximately 150 miles south of New Orleans the LBV was put to its first test. Working in the Green Canyon on the world's largest spar Holstein Sonsub Inc. sent the LBV to 700 feet (213 meters). The task for the LBV was to assit the Sonsub Inc. Innovator WCROV in making sure the riser was going in and out of the right bell guide. There are a total of fifteen risers on the spar.

According to Randy Easterling of Sonsub Inc. the LBV operated at depth for over 100 hours with ZERO down time successfully completing the job. Other comments from Randy were "The LBV's control console is a joy to use, user friendly and easy to operate." and "I have been very happy with the video quality as are the people with Pride, who are counting on the ROV to get the job done in a timely and safe manner."

Soon Sonsub Inc. will take delivery of their second LBV300S-FO system. In addition to the standard features including depth rated to 300 meters, 350 meters of umbilical, Prizm fiber optic electronics, umbilical reel, brushless thrusters the system was fitted with external lighting and three jaw grabber.
