Ocean Modules Equipment Case Studies
The unique capabilities of Ocean Modules ROV systems equipped with the V8 360° control system and the SPOT.ON Information Management Software provide new ways to get jobs done. These videos showcase some of the creative ways our customers are saving time and money.
Finding and Documenting Shipwrecks
The V8 Sii has been used to identify and explore many wrecks, from documentation of historically significant ships that sank hundreds of years ago to investigations of recent submarine and airplane crashes.
The high power to size ratio and precise control system lets operators get close to and even penetrate wreckage without stirring up silt.
Advanced Precision Manipulation
The extreme ease of use and precision control of the V8 Sii ROV is immediately obvious to anyone who has ever operated one. This video shows someone with absolutely no previous ROV experience turning a valve.
Thanks to the stable and agile V8 360° control system no expensive manipulators are required.
Underneath the Antarctic Ice
Compact size, reliability and ease of maintenance are all factors when repair shops and spare parts are far away.
The Australian Antarcic division use an Ocean Modules V8 Sii ROV to measure the thickness of the Antarctic ice and document life underneath it.
Ship Hull Inspections
Law enforcement agencies and military forces around the world routinely use the Ocean Modules V8 Sii ROV for hull inspections, exposing smuggling attempts and improvised explosive devices.
Cameras and lights are always aligned and can be positioned at any angle against the hull for the most effective search possible.
The 360° freedom of movement control system allows the V8 Sii to follow cables at any required angle. Eight powerful thrusters keep the V8 Sii ROV stable and on track, even in adverse conditions.
Patented survey software SPOT.ON collects data from the cable tracker, sonar and video into one place, tracked geographically, for extremely simple reporting.
Extremely Long Tunnel Inspections
The V8 Sii has successfully performed many long tunnel surveys, including pipes up to 1800 meters in length in the water system below Berlin.
The V8 Sii has performed surveys up to 2400 meters into nuclear cooling tunnels without any type of tether-management system, arguably a new record for vehicles of the V8 Sii's size and power.
