OUR ROVs

 

V8 Sii and V8 M500

MANEUVERABLE AND AGILE
The V8 can control heading, pitch and roll through a full 360°, enabling it to assume and hold any orientation in the water, whether stationary or not. This agility enables maximum thrust in any direction, enables ROV access into difficult to reach places and enables flexible camera/sensor/ tooling orientation.


SMOOTH AND STABLE
The 6 axis motion sensor, microprocessor control and eight vectored thrusters combine to give the ROV active stability. It constantly corrects its heading, pitch, roll and depth to maintain the optimum position. This provides a smooth and stable sensor platform similar to ROVs many times it’s size.


 

CAPABLE
Whether free flying a riser down to 360m in the open sea from an FPSO deck, pulling lines 600m down tunnels, waterblasting with 13000psi or carrying an Octans Gyro, the V8 has repeatedly demonstrated its power and effectiveness in field operations. The fully vectored design is extremely efficient and the V8 can continue to work in conditions beyond the capabilities of other inspection ROVs.


FLEXIBLE AND RELIABLE
Our ROVs are designed and built in Sweden to exacting standards. Originally aimed at the military market they are rated to run at 100% power, all of the time. All equipment is robust and the control unit can even be run outdoors in tropical heat. The V8 has been successfully run from DP vessels, FPSO’s, platforms, PSV’s, workboats and even a 6m FRC.

vLBV950 and LBV150-2

DEEP WATER HIGHLY CAPABLE MiniROV
The new vLBV950 is a deep water solution with a high degree of capability. Rated to 950 meters (3,116ft) and still the same compact dimensions of the vLBV300. Vector thruster configuration with dual vertical thrusters and an impressive power to weight ratio.

 

POWERFUL VARIABLE VECTOR THRUSTER CONFIGURATION
Vectored thruster configuration provides amazing control in all horizontal directions, therefore the use offshore in demanding conditions. The vLBV950 has impressive bollard thrust with 18.1-22.5 kg f (40-50 pd f) forward. Thruster vector angle is variable from equal horizontal to forward optimized. Dual vertical thrusters offer greater vertical control and roll stabilization.

AN EXCEPTIONALLY WELL ROUNDED SYSTEM FOR INSHORE APPLICATIONS
The LBV150-2 offers all the proven features of the LBV systems. Ideally suited to inshore or civil applications where a rapid setup is required. The integrated control console, tether and ROV take only minutes to have ready for operation.

 

POWERFUL AND MANEUVERABLE THRUSTER CONFIGURATION
The LBV150-2 is a highly stable small ROV platform equipped with powerful Brushless DC thrusters. 4-axis control provides the operator with total maneuverability.

 

HIGH-QUALITY VIDEO AND LIGHTNING
The LBV150-2 systems are supplied with the latest Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) color camera technology. Coupled to the color camera is a high intensity LED array providing bright white light throughout the 270º range of view.
