Underwater inspection with the Bots-2

12 Jul 2016 | Posted By Planys Technologies

As you would have read in our first article, Remotely operated vehicles have been designed to meet the extreme demands of underwater with inspection of subsea structures in hazardous environments. Recap: As technologies and capabilities have increased, industries like Maritime (Ports and shipping) , Infrastructures (Dams and bridges) and Energy (Oil & Gas, Nuclear, Power and Desalination) have come to rely on ROVs (know more about what a ROV is, in our previous blog ‘Underwater inspection with the Bots’) for drilling support and underwater construction services to develop deep water exploration and development projects worldwide. Manual inspections have limitations of endurance, depths, and ability to carry payloads, and inability to work in hazardous environments. Overcoming these limitations, ROVs have unlimited endurance, provide repeatable data, access higher depths, and can work in hazardous environments. Work class ROV’s The next iteration of ROV called Work class ROV (Source), are powered and electrically enabling some more serious traits in the subsea level. Most of these ROVs are deployed for repair work underwater. Work class ROVs operate in the World’s harshest environments and are therefore designed and built with…...
