ECA Group delivers H300 ROV in France
ECA Group has delivered an H300 MK2 ROV to France's Satif Ouvrage d’Art for inspection and intervention operations on immerged structures, the company announced on 27 February.
The ROV has been equipped with a scanning sonar and an imaging sonar, both mounted on a skid assembly beneath the ROV. The vehicle is also equipped with a precise positioning system linked to surface operators by a fibre-optic umbilical cable.
The H300 ROV can perform intervention up to 300m depth. It can be equipped with a wide range of additional equipment for inspection and surveillance, such as rear and 3D TV cameras and digital still camera; manipulator arms; and additional sensors.
Both ROV and additional equipment can be controlled through a single and ergonomic control unit. The umbilical cable is housed on a manual winch and equipped with a slip ring assembly.
Satif Ouvrage d’Art provides inspection and intervention on immerged structures such as bridges, locks, dams or water treatment plants.
