Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) has announced that it received an order from Subsea 7 S.A. to supply eight work-class remotely operated vehicle (ROV) systems. The ROVs will be delivered through late 2014 and 2015.
The order comprises two Perry™ XLX Evo 200HP ROVs for Subsea 7's new-build Heavy Construction Vessel and six Perry XLX-C 150HP ROVs for three new-build Pipe-lay Support Vessels for the Brazilian market.
