Underwater inspection with Remotely Operated Vehicles
We use and develop world-leading mini Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) technology to deliver safe and cost-effective solutions at a fraction of the cost of traditional manned inspection
When compared to dive teams and work class ROVs, our clients have experienced cost savings of up to 60%.
Our micro ROV is an (unmanned) underwater drone that executes visual underwater inspections at a depth of up to 150 m.
From a research vessel or quay, the micro ROV is steered by means of a hand console. The performed operations can be followed on a secondary screen.
Our reporting software supplies the client with a full detailed survey record.
We are approved by RINA, Bureau Veritas, Lloyd's Register and ABS to perform remotely operated inspections under water.
Micro ROV operational tasks:
offshore windturbine - foundation inspections
Under Water Inspection in Lieu of Dry-docking (UWILD) on pontoons.
ballast tank inspections with the vessel in operation
fishing industry surveys, fish farming cages surveys – mussel and oyster farms
fouling inspection of the ship’s hull
damage inspection of the ship’s hull
touchdown monitoring (TDM)
Micro ROVs are not toys but real vehicles designed and built to the same criteria as its larger counterparts.
They are versatile, able to work in water depths up to 150m and being very lightweight. They can never cause damage to subsea structures, people or equipment.
