Inspection with a ROV


As a complement to our main activities, we have a ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) to inspect submarine pipelines and structures.

This equipment enables us to remotely inspect locations of difficult or dangerous access for a traditional diver and which is not limited by dive times.

We have a Seabotix vLBV300-L ROV with a variable vector thruster, which may be operated in various conditions and up to depths of 300 m. It is equipped with a tether of 1,250 m, endowing it with a unique operation capacity to inspect, for example, very long submarine pipelines.
