Bowtech Wins Supply Contract from Allseas


Image: Bowtech Bowtech Products Ltd., a market leading manufacturer and supplier of cameras, LED lighting, emergency relocation strobes, connectors, fiber optic multiplexers and slip rings for use in underwater or hazardous area applications, to any ocean depth, has announced that in partnership with N-Seatec Subsea Systems B.V. (N-Seatec), their agent in Benelux, have won a supply contract with Allseas. This contract with Allseas involves the supply of Surveyor HD (High Definition) cameras, replacing the existing HD cameras on all their Schilling UHD ROVs. This contract was won in collaboration with Bowtech’s exclusive agent in the Benelux region – N-Seatec, despite tough and aggressive competition. Bowtech and N-Seatec also won the supply of the associated connectors and various interconnection cables.

Allseas are planning to upgrade all 30 cameras on their existing ROV fleet and have already ordered the first four cameras after testing them on the Schilling UHD ROV at the beginning of 2012. Bowtech’s Surveyor High Definition (HD) color zoom camera utilizes Sony’s latest block camera incorporating 1/3 inch HD CMOS CCD giving exceptional picture quality, 10:1 optical zoom lens, as well as horizontal resolution of 800+ TV lines. Standard video output is component, however HD-SDI and fiber output are also available. A unique feature of this camera, apart for the exceptional picture quality, is its size. The camera has titanium 6000 meter rated housing, with optically clear sapphire window. The camera is smaller than the standard underwater color zoom camera and therefore ideal for mounting on all ROV’s.
