Paul Whalen has assumed the day-to-day responsibilities for FMC Schilling Robotics, president and founder Tyler Schilling has announced. The move frees up Schilling to concentrate on leading core product development of deepwater remotely operated vehicles.

“Paul has led our operations group for nearly five years, and his leadership has resulted in tremendous advancements in the quality, reliability and efficiency of our products,” Schilling said in a news release.

“Paul’s new title is vice president and general manager, and I will remain as president of FMC Schilling Robotics. As such, I am excited to focus my attention and enthusiasm on developing solutions that will make our customers the most productive in the industry.

“The pursuit of creating products that help make our customers successful continues to be a personal passion, and I have never been more excited about the advancements that our latest developments will offer,” Schilling said.

By the end of this year, the firm will be announcing the deployment of its next-generation ROV system, Schilling said.

“This will include the most versatile and powerful intervention hydraulics system available in the market, along with automated control features that greatly enhance the capabilities of all operators, and reduce the training time required to become proficient.”

FMC Schilling Robotics, headquartered at 260 Cousteau Place in Davis, is a global, deep-ocean robotics company founded in 1985. In 2008, FMC Technologies Inc. acquired a 45 percent interest in Schilling.

FMC is a global provider of technology solutions for the energy industry. FMC designs, manufactures and services technologically sophisticated systems and products, such as subsea production and processing systems, surface wellhead systems, high pressure fluid control equipment, measurement solutions, and marine loading systems for the oil and gas industry.

The robot arms and ROVs that Schilling makes are used extensively in the undersea petroleum business, among other industries.

“Whenever you hear the term ‘ROV’ or ‘robot submersible’ or the other terms that have been used in the news, it’s safe to say that every single one of the devices that are down there are using our robot arms, and some of the ROVs are made by us,” Schilling said in a 2010 interview with The Enterprise.
