Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) are being used for offshore and onshore inspections that surround energy production. Deep Trekker is showcasing their underwater robots at the Electric Power Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
Much of new energy developments - offshore wind, solar, oil and gas, nuclear, hydroelectricity - involve underwater infrastructure. The Deep Trekker team is attending the 20th Electric Power Conference in Nashville from March 20th to 21st to present its robotic solutions to ensure safety, efficiency and to lessen environmental impact on periodic monitoring below the surface.
Inspecting hydroelectric dams can be a difficult and expensive operation. Water flow at the dam must be shut down or slowed significantly to allow access to divers, who are often forced to work in dark overhead, debris-filled environments, making it a particularly hazardous job.
Deep Trekker ROV systems offer an alternative to sending divers underwater to complete emergency or routine inspection work. With onboard batteries, operation is made simple, without having to carry around a generator or find a power supply near the inspection area. Deep Trekker ROVs offer peace of mind by acting as an extra set of eyes in the water for safety, security, and guidance.
"We’ve developed a fully submersible ROV that not only offers a higher level of precision for inspections, but it helps to eliminate the cost and dangers of hiring a diver to conduct similar work”, says Sam Macdonald, President, Deep Trekker. “It’s an ideal robotic system for today’s power production and generation needs."
