How Commercial Divers Can Benefit from an ROV

Rachel Doornekamp   |   December 17, 2019

Remotely Operated Vehicles, or ROVs , are a versatile tool for commercial divers. A major industry able to tackle complex challenges, commercial diving has applications from open ocean water to the confined spaces of industrial tanks. While divers cannot be replaced by technology, Deep Trekker ROVs can enhance operations and practices.

Pre Dive Inspections

With their portability and quick deployment, Deep Trekker ROVs provide an excellent way to conduct preliminary inspections. Explore the site to determine the specific tools and resources required for the job and accurately quote customer contracts. With thorough pre-dive inspections, divers can use their time more effectively when they enter the water themselves.

Post Dive Evaluations

Recording underwater dive operations in 4K UHD provides value to both divers and their clients. Divers can evaluate dives to determine where operations and efficiency could be improved. Companies can also create a historical directory of diving content for marketing, documentation and review purposes. Add value to customers by providing high quality service reports.

Improve Safety

While commercial diving is a crucial role, it is also unfortunately an inherently dangerous one. The use of an ROV provides users with an opportunity to improve safety for themselves and their dive team. Underwater operations can be monitored from topside to ensure safety policies are being implemented. In the event that something does go wrong, help can be deployed immediately.

Specialized Features

Deep Trekker’s diveable controller further enhances the user experience. The diveable controller allows users to control the ROV from under the water. Divers can send the ROV ahead into confined spaces or potentially hazardous situations before going in themselves. In dangerous scenarios divers can stay away from the risk entirely and perform the underwater task from the diveable controller.

In addition to advanced pipe crawlers and utility crawlers, Deep Trekker offers two cutting edge ROVs; the DTG3 and the REVOLUTION. The DTG3 is an intelligent mini observation-class underwater vehicle built to provide operators the ability to quickly deploy and visually inspect within underwater environments. Mission-ready with greater payload capabilities, deeper depths and advanced stabilization, the REVOLUTION is a completely reimagined ROV. With the most versatile, reliable and durable underwater robot on their team, commercial divers can enhance operations and safety practices to maximize their time and budget.
