Forum Energy Technologies (FET) and underwater inspections provider, SAFEEN Survey & Subsea Services, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop electric thrusters for ROVs.

As part of the MOU agreement, the thrusters will be subject to extensive cycle testing to validate functionality, durability and integration capabilities with existing ROV systems.

The development of the thrusters will be overseen by experts from both FET and SAFEEN, driving collaboration through effective communication and coordination of project activities.

The thrusters will be tailored specifically to the requirements of SAFEEN’s submersibles to enhance the performance, efficiency and reliability of their underwater services capabilities.
