ROV Underwater Inspections
why use Rovs?
With the rapid progress in robotics, remotely operated vehicles are becoming a better option for underwater inspections. They are the optimal choice in deep or dangerous water environments where utilizing a diver is either not safe or practical due to the costs involved. Cross Marine Projects has several ROVs that can complete inspections up to 300 meters deep and can be rapidly deployed for emergency situations. Many companies utilize cheaper units, but here at Cross Marine we utilize Seamor ROVs which are much more capable allowing for more detailed inspections. This allows for better project planning saving time and money. Our pilots have hundreds of hours of experience and can get the results you need. These ROVs can also be utilized for light recovery, non destructive testing, sample collection, and video observations.
search & Recovery
ROVs are especially effective in search and recovery operations. Utilizing specialty imaging sonars, they can locate and recover small objects or victims rapidly. Cross Marine Projects is utilized on many search and recovery operations from private companies with lost equipment to emergency services and victim recovery.
An ROV survey can help salvage crews determine the condition, structural integrity, and lift points available on a sunken vessel or aircraft. On construction projects, a company can determine location of placed structures or condition of structures to be removed. This allows for a faster, better planned, and more cost effective operation.
