Thrusters
Position the ROV in all three directions and/or maintain its position.
2
Manipulators
Used for all tasks that the human arm can do, such as holding, turning, taking apart, guiding etc.
3
Cameras / sonar systems
Cameras are the pilot’s eyes – a sonar system helps to navigate in murky water.
4
Umbilical
Cable to supply energy and control the ROV.
5
Frame
Various tools can be mounted onto the frame, such as cutting tools, cable trackers, jetting tools, seismic equipment etc.

REMOTELY OPERATED VEHICLE

REMOTELY OPERATED VEHICLE (ROV) FOR UNDERWATER OPERATIONS

Remotely operated vehicles (ROV) are used for a variety of underwater tasks and inspections on offshore structures. The robot is launched into the water from a vessel or a platform and are remotely controlled with an umbilical cable. Small robots equipped with cameras are often used for visual inspections of offshore structures below water. Bigger ones, on the other hand, tend to have flexible tools such as manipulator arms, cutting and separating tools, cable and tube detectors, jetting and suction pumps and a range of video cameras. Diving robots can be universally deployed in water depths of a few meters up to thousands of meters. Depending on their propulsion concept, they can also work in currents and ensure long operating periods in round the clock operation mode. ROVs have proven their worth in risky operations and at great water depths, and are a helpful tool in today’s offshore sector. Typically, an ROV is operated and maintained on board by a team of up to six members.
