Divetech. Ltd are underwater survey specialists.
Divetech Ltd is a company that utilizes a REMOTE OPERATED VEHICLE (ROV) for underwater visual inspections.
Our customers say that a R.O.V is the preferred method of preliminary inspection and if divers are required as this limits the exposure of the divers and allow them to focus on areas of interest and not waste precious dive time on searching for the problem
Divetech Ltd operates a Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) designed to deploy our sensors and tools into a variety of structures. Whether the requirement calls for small ROV to enter limited access structures or large ROV capable of high currents or very long penetrations, we have the deployment platform for the project.
At Divetech, Ltd we have completed a wide variety of projects using remote operated vehicles, The projects cover a broad spectrum of underwater work and inspection, applications in industries such as water conveyance tunnels, ocean outfalls, bridges, power & telecommunications cables, shipwreck surveys, diver support and salvage operations.
Remote Operated Vehicles are the advanced technology that allows us to provide outstanding service to our clients. In fact, the ROV is simply a deployment system used in the underwater inspection process. The sensors and tools are the most important part of the total ROV system because they produce the data necessary to interpret the data and, design underwater repairs.
Experience is the most important component of clear video imaging underwater. Smooth piloting with the proper lighting and cameras gives the best possible imaging. Experienced pilots adjust everything from the position of the ROV, tilt of the camera, light intensity and camera selection to obtain the most meaningful image.
ROV systems are used extensively worldwide by the police, coast guard, military, television companies, and the offshore industry.
Our ROV and team are ready for immediate mobilization 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
In many areas, engineering inspections and maintenance surveys are dreaded and often put off for lack of funding. Sending divers into structures, pipelines, drinking water tanks, etc has long been the practice for inspecting the structures, but it is dangerous and can pose health risks. Now, more clients are looking into alternative methods to conduct inspections and surveys that can co-exist with divers and make photographic and video inspections safer, more affordable, and more frequent.
“Our mini remote control underwater vehicle is the most effective, safest and economical way to carry out subsea inspection work today”
We have the answer…
The CHINOOK is an industrial grade inspection ROV with a wide range of capabilities. Explore depths of 300 m (1,000 ft) with the standard vehicle or 600 m (2,000 ft) with the deepwater version.
