Inspection

The offshore industry is one of the primary beneficiaries of small ROV evolution. In this market, there is a considerable history of ROVs that handle underwater work in deep water (greater than 300 meters) depth ratings, or the ability to carry heavy payload or tools. Larger "Work Class" ROVs that perform these feats are a multi-billion dollar industry that had developed to meet oil and gas exploration, production, and handling tasks. However, many of the tasks assigned to work class ROVs – or human divers – is shallow (less than 300 meters) and involves searching, inspecting, or surveying underwater. These tasks are ideally suited to the Seaeye Cougar-XT ROV. The Seaeye Cougar-XT is a development of the successful Seaeye Cougar range, proven worldwide in demanding applications and recognised for its capability to operate effectively as an inspection/light work-class ROV. The new Cougar-XT comes with a considerable improvement in performance. Developments in drive and power technology has seen vehicle thrust increased by over 50% in all directions - creating a vehicle with the highest thrust to weight ratio in its class. Vehicle power in the XT has been doubled by increasing the supplied voltage from the standard 250 Volts DC to 500 Volts. Apart from improving the vehicles handling this enables a Seaeye Cougar-XT to accommodate a wider range of heavier duty tooling for work tasks. These include drill support, salvage and IRM to depths of 2000 metres. The Seaeye Cougar-XT can be deployed in sea states where using larger machines is too dangerous. And their smaller size means they can penetrate areas where other machines are too small. In this area, Melsmore Marine undertakes:
