ROV for tank inspection in Municipal Landmark
Kiara Vallier | April 19, 2016
Landmark Municipal Services; a water storage facility maintenance company located in Burlington, Ontario has acquired a Deep Trekker DTG2 Pro ROV with accessories to add to their service fleet.
Ayr, Ontario April 14, 2016. Today Landmark Municipal Services equipped their team with a Deep Trekker DTG2 Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Landmark Municipal Services has over 40 years of experience in the design, construction and inspection of water storage facilities across Canada. They provide full service from beginning to end of a water tank’s life. Landmark Municipal Services have been utilizing ROVs as a cost effective and safe way to inspect the internal structures of water tanks, without taking the tank out of operation. “Our engineering knowledge of water tower construction helps ensure that the structures we maintain are fully compliant with all of the latest design and safety requirements” explains Dave Baker, NACE Certified Coating Inspector with Landmark Municipal Services.
Carrying the DTG2 ROV on his back
The American Water Works Association recommends that water tanks be washed out and inspected at least every three years. Landmark Municipal Services understands that sometimes a water storage facility cannot be taken out of service, so they turn to remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to perform thorough internal tank inspections.
Landmark Municipal Services contacted Deep Trekker to equip their team with a DTG2 ROV when their previous ROV experienced a tether issue. Deep Trekker Inc. manufactures mini-ROVs that are completely portable, with internal batteries that last between 6-8 hours on a single charge. The DTG2 ROV sports an easy-to-use handheld controller with a built-in screen, making it the perfect tool to perform water tank inspections.
“It is our goal to provide useful tools for municipal service companies that are truly portable,” commented Sam Macdonald, Deep Trekker President. “Not just the ROV itself, but the entire system can be deployed and operated in remote or secure areas such as the top of water towers.”
Unpacking the DTG2 ROV
Landmark Municipal Services was drawn to the Deep Trekker DTG2 ROV because of its portability and robust design; made of die-cast aluminum (that is anodized and powder coated). The small yet durable tether design. After encountering issues with their previous ROV, the strong tether was a huge deciding factor for the company.
Landmark Municipal Services have accepted delivery and will begin using their new DTG2 ROV right away to perform daily water tank inspections in the Burlington region.
