ROVs for Offshore Energy Operations

Rachel Doornekamp   |   November 27, 2019

With more than a quarter of the world’s oil and gas supply produced offshore, offshore energy operations are increasingly becoming a major component of global oil and natural gas supply. Furthermore, offshore electricity generation has increased rapidly as of late with the growth of wind farms, particularly in the coastal waters of Europe’s North Sea.

As the industry experiences continued growth and innovation, it is imperative that safety procedures grow and advance with the industry. Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) offer simple and effective ways to increase safety at offshore energy operations.


ROVs provide a straightforward and effective way to perform inspections at offshore energy operations. Routine inspection work on submerged structures can be done easily and efficiently with an ROV. Regular inspections monitor and evaluate systems, working to prevent major issues or disasters. Consistent inspections of all submerged structures is an extremely important practice to ensure long term safety and efficiency.

Add on tools like grabber arms, laser scalers, Cygnus thickness gauges and sonar options allow operators to perform a variety of helpful underwater tasks to further analyze and evaluate the structural integrity of their operations.

Emergency Scenarios

With no topside power required, Deep Trekker’s battery powered ROVs can respond quickly in emergency scenarios. Get eyes in the water immediately, without putting a human at risk. Easily transported in a custom carrying case, the ROV can be moved promptly when necessary.

Keeping Divers Safe

In many cases, deploying divers for routine tasks is an unnecessary risk that can be inconvenient and time consuming - not to mention dangerous. A Deep Trekker ROV provides an easy, efficient and safe inspection tool for offshore structures.

In situations where a diver is necessary, an underwater ROV is a useful tool to provide assistance and increase safety. An ROV can be deployed with the divers so that topside supervisors can monitor dive conditions.

Versatile and effective, Deep Trekker ROVs have proven themselves to be incredibly valuable and useful with regards to offshore energy operations. Find out more about ROVs in the energy sector or speak to an industry specialist today.
