Understand what’s happening under your vessel without diver intervention
Why Deep Trekker for Shipping
Ocean shipping continues to be the main type of transport for thousands of goods and equipment across nation lines. From continent to continent, in today’s world of increased globalization, the connection between markets has never been more intertwined. A vessel’s structural integrity, potential transferring of invasive species, or contraband smuggling demands periodic inspections of the vessel’s hull during transit and when entering port. Deep Trekker commercial grade ROVs provide an affordable, user-friendly way to perform marine surveys, ship inspections, and more without diver intervention.
Use ROVs for Various Ship Inspection Tasks
Deep Trekker ROVs offer an easy, fast and effective way to perform hull inspections, dock inspections and virtually any task that requires immediate eyes under the water.
Emergency hull inspections, nighttime inspections, and marina checks are easily completed with Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicles. Boat, yacht or vessel owners now have a way to monitor the status of their hull without needing to dry dock it or send divers into unknown areas. This in turn gives them the opportunity to address any potential issues at the outset, avoiding higher repair costs and further damage to one’s hull. If an ROV boat inspection reveals any damage, you will know exactly where to send your repair team.
Underwater Security for Port Authorities
With Deep Trekker ROVs, port authorities and border security professionals are able to perform an efficient hull inspection on every single vessel to pass through their waters without the need to send a human into the water, or incur the high costs and delay of dry-docking. Contraband inspections can be performed efficiently, regularly, and without risk to a human underwater.
For marina supervisors, providing their clients with value-added services such as vessel inspections can be a simple service for a marina to implement. The Deep Trekker ROVs can even be equipped with tools to retrieve lost of accidentally dropped items.
“Underwater Inspection in Lieu of Dry-docking” can be completed with an ROV from Deep Trekker along with a certified surveyor. The internal HD camera accurately documents and records the condition of the hull markings, sea chests, inlets and discharges, rudders, pintles, sacrificial anodes, and propeller. The Deep Trekker DTG2 and DTX2 ROV systems can also be outfitted with a thickness gauge to test the thickness of the hull for a complete UWILD ROV inspection.
Our Marine Survey ROVs Are Easy to Use
You don’t need a high level of expertise to use our marine survey ROV equipment. You can master the guidance of the ROV and operation of the marine environment inspection camera in a matter of hours, with no training required.
The ROV’s spherical shape and patented pitching system allows you to effortlessly maneuver it into tight spots. The internal battery power prevents the need for excessive cord management, which further simplifies the ROV’s operation. What’s more, the lack of the need for connectivity to a generator or topside box means you can deploy the ROV from anywhere on the vessel or docks — even in the most remote locations.
