Oil and Energy
Rugged and Robust Features of a Work Class ROV, but in a portable, affordable package.
As the population grows, the need for efficient production and delivery of energy is becoming more and more pressing. Much of the new energy developments, whether wind, solar, oil and gas, nuclear, or hydroelectricity, involve infrastructure under the water. Ensuring safety, efficiency, and lessening environmental impact depends on proper and periodic monitoring of the processes and equipment below the surface. The Deep Trekker mini ROV systems offer an alternative or complement to sending divers down to do emergency or routine inspection work.
Deep Trekker portable ROV systems have been used to do 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, with no need to carry a generator or find a power supply near the inspection area. Undersea installations at sea-based wind and solar installations can easily be done from the boat with the one-man carry ROV systems. Even when divers are needed in the water for repairs or inspections, Deep Trekker mini ROVs offer peace of mind by being 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 into the perfect tools for oil & energy-related needs.
The Benefits of Deep Trekker for Oil and Energy:
- Easily deploy with 1 -2 person teams to complete full hydroelectric, nuclear, or other energy-related inspections
- Onboard batteries requiring no top-side power
- 270-degree camera rotation for efficient inspection
- Monitor divers easily and completely document all work
- Pitching System allows the ROV to go where is too small or dangerous for divers
- No maintenance, no shaft seals to service, grease or replace. Simply keep it clean and charged
