In 2012 Fertoing Ltd. has become the first company in the Russian Federation that fully mastered operation of ROVs of work and observation classes. Our specialists took courses and participated in all stages of WROV TRITON XLX 150HP production. In summer 2012 two WROV TRITON XLX 150HP were installed to the semi-submersible floating drilling rig (SSFDR) Polyarnaya Zvezda (Polar Star) and MSV Kendrick and commenced subsea engineering operations in the continental shelf of the Russian Federation.

During the year the company performed a large scope of navigational, hydrographic and subsea works in the Sea of Okhotsk including search and survey of the sunken drilling platform Kolskaya at the depth of more than 1070m.

In May-November more than 60 employees were sent to the Kirinskoye gas condensate field (GCF) where they carried out subsea technical support to drilling of development wells from the SSFDR Polyarnaya Zvezda (Polar Star) and construction of a subsea production unit, being the first in the Russian Federation, within the framework of the Sakhalin-III Project using WROVs TRITON XLX 150HP.

During 2012 we carried out engineering and hydrographic support to dredging operations in the ports of St. Petersburg, Sochi, Ust-Luga, Taman, Nakhodka, Sabetta. Realizing importance of such work we tried to be precise and thorough at every stage.

Another matter of importance is that in autumn 2012 the Full-up VMAX XLX Console Simulation Package with Scenario Development Studio was installed at Fertoing Marine Engineering Training Center in St-Petersburg. The Simulator is a complete replica of the actual WROV TRITON XLX 150HP console. Like WROV TRITON XLX 150HP, VMAX XLX Console Simulation Package is the one and only in the Russian Federation.

The year’s almost over and Fertoing has performed 97 control and inspection surveys of hydraulic facilities issuing relevant certificates.

Today 135 different expert engineers are permanently employed by Fertoing.

Throughout its history Fertoing provides Clients with high-standard engineering services reaffirming efficiency and technological superiority.

During this year working from Sakhalin to Kaliningrad and from Murmansk to Sochi we performed more than 170 engineering services in 22 ports in the waters of 8 seas.
