Reducing the Costs and Risk Associated with Offshore Inspections

Shannon Regan   |   March 13, 2019

Across a variety of offshore industries, there is a push to reduce man hours to reduce cost, risk and weather dependency during offshore inspections.

Reduced cost and increased satellite communication infrastructure opens up the opportunity to operate systems located offshore, remotely from shore. In addition to reduced cost and risk, remote operation can greatly increase use of equipment, providing for 24/7 availability, during all weather conditions.

Offshore operators are looking to deploy more conventional systems to allow for autonomous operation, prompting the need for high power energy supply, a reliable, low latency and high capacity communication link to shore, as well as cost efficient installation methods. The solution - remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

ROVs for Offshore Inspections

Deep Trekker ROVs have been used to conduct inspections at nuclear power plants, including water tanks, in-water equipment, and in reactor. Inspecting penstock and trash gates at hydroelectric stations is made simple, without the need for a generator or power supply in the inspection area.

Underwater installations at wind and solar power plants can easily be conducted from a boat with our one-man carrying system. Even when divers are required in water for repairs or inspections, Deep Trekker ROVs offer peace of mind by acting as an extra set of eyes in the water for safety, security, and guidance. Our years of experience providing ROVs for these operations have helped us to refine our models to well suit the oil & energy industry.

The DTX2 ROV is the perfect system for all offshore inspections. The integrated vectored thrusters allow for lateral side-to-side movements, precise turning, both forward and backwards. Built with our patented pitch system, it can rotate 180 degrees to move vertically, making it easy to maneuver in confined areas. Designed with offshore energy in mind, the
system can work in high currents while maintaining its stability.
