Monitoring and maintaining your submerged infrastructure has never been easier.
Routine inspections are the key to the long-term care and success of any infrastructure. With underwater infrastructure, routine inspections such as dam, bridge, and resevoir inspections were historically arduous and difficult, and often dangerous. The importance of these inspections grows for the long-term health of the structure, due to the effect that water has on construction materials. Divers are placed in dangerous scenarios for a task that is taken for granted above the sea.
The Deep Trekker DT340 Pipe Crawler product line is specifically designed to perform infrastructure inspections of pipeline systems. The pipe crawler is submersible up to 50 meters (164 ft), making it ideal for a variety of municipal inspection such as storm and sanitary systems. The system builds on the same principles of the Deep Trekker ROVs, but specifically configured to crawl through pipelines with a live video feed of the pipe’s integrity.
Deep Trekker Products Provide a Portable, Easy-to-Use Infrastructure Inspection Solutions
Our infrastructure ROVs and pipe crawlers do not require an external power source such as a generator or topside box. They’re equipped with powerful internal batteries specifically designed to provide the extended operating life required for lengthy infrastructure inspection, maintenance, and repair jobs. Our ROVs & pipe crawlers are also valuable tools for construction projects in marine or underwater environments. The handheld controller allows the operator to maneuver the inspection vehicle without having to enter the water. The controller is also easy to use and does not require an extensive training period. In addition to infrastructure inspections, our ROVs are great supplemental tools for marine construction and underwater surveying.
Traditional pipe crawler systems require a dedicated service truck to complete inspections. The Deep Trekker DT340 pipe crawler line comes complete in two carrying cases and can be deployed in less than 5 minutes. This unique design is ideal for emergency inspections or inspections in remote or confined spaces.
The Benefits of Deep Trekker in Infrastructure:
- No topside power required, self contained batteries provide a full working days work on 1 battery charge.
- 270 degree camera rotation to quickly inspect submerged infrastructure
- Easy to use, no previous training required
- Affordable tool for everyone, with robust and sophisticated features
- Easily record all investigations with voice-over to an SD card
- Compact and extreme maneuverability for inspection of confined spaces

“We use this ROV extensively doing pipeline surveys, and for water tower inspections. the maneuverability and portability are huge pluses. and the video quality is better than that on our larger (and much more expensive) unit. overall, an excellent piece of kit.”
