New year, new mobilisation.

CCCUWE has been contracted to provide air diving services on a client’s vessel in the Middle East region to undertake subsea pipeline preparation operations in readiness for planned remedial scope encompassing pipeline repairs and smart-flange installation.


CCC (UE) continues its strong reputation of undertaking large subsea inspection projects.

Our Seaeye Leopard 1706 WROV, is once again engaged in subsea pipeline & umbilical external inspection operations in the Middle East region. The inspection campaign will cover several subsea assets totalling an accumulative survey distance of over 650km.

The CCC (UE) owned and operated Saab Seaeye Leopard 1706, remotely operated vehicle (ROV), is fitted with three HD cameras (1080i), Bathy suite, SVP, CP, laser line generator and dual profiling sonars. The WROV is being tracked subsea using a combination of a Sonardyne Mini-Ranger 2 USBL system from the DPII vessel and a Sonardyne SPRINT-Nav 500 all-in-one subsea navigation system installed on the WROV.

In addition to providing the ROV system, CCC(UE) also is able to provide clients with surface and sub-surface positioning survey services, which can also include the acquisition, processing and reporting of inspection data.

Both the Triton XLS 39 WROV and Seaeye Cougar XTi 1449 ROV depart from the CCC yard for mobilisation onto a client’s vessel, following CCC (Underwater Engineering) S.A.L. contract award by an EPC contractor, for the supply of two ROV systems to support offshore operations in the Middle East region.
The Triton XLS 39 remotely operated vehicle is a 3,000 m depth rated heavy work class vehicle, with a type 4b Top Hat TMS. The XLS vehicle has increased thrust, additional payload and extra space within the vehicle frame to accommodate client requirements, with a through frame lift capacity of 3,000 Kg. The Triton XLS WROV system provides an excellent platform to undertake a wide variety of survey and construction support operations.
The second vehicle being mobilised is the Seaeye Cougar XTi 1449 remotely operated vehicle, which is a 2,000 m depth rated version of the compact, highly flexible and extremely powerful Cougar-XT ROV system. The Cougar-XTi is a very stable platform and is able to perform well in strong currents and under the harshest conditions, providing excellent handling and manoeuvrability. It is ideal for undertaking a variety of subsea operations. The Cougar-XTi 1449 also features ICON, SAAB Seaeye’s modular control system.

Following the mobilisation of the DPII DSSC “Said Aletheia” at the end of last week. The DPII “CCC Maritime 2” has been awarded a charter with an EPC contractor in the Middle East.
In addition to the charter of the vessel CCC (Underwater Engineering) S.A.L., is providing the complete air diving spread for the EPC contractor to utilize during the charter.
The DPII “CCC Maritime 2” is a versatile, multipurpose Dive/ROV support vessel, which is suitable for survey, IRM, cable laying, geotechnical investigations and light construction projects. With the ability to operate with a draft of 3.75m, the vessel is ideally suited for shallow water operations. DP II “CCC Maritime 2” has an ABS classification of DPS2 and was built in 2013. The vessel is equipped with a 30mT telescopic subsea crane, 370m2 clear deck (capable of supporting loads of 5T/m2) and can accommodate up to 76 personnel on-board
