Greensea has developed a new hull crawler that can be used to attach a ROV to the hull of a vessel without the use of magnetics.

The initial crawlers have been designed to work with VideoRay’s Mission Specialist Defender ROV to carry out hull inspections, surveying, non-destructive testing and EOD.

VideoRay CEO Scott Bentley said: ‘Our close integration with Greensea means that each of us can provide the other with best-in-class capabilities, resulting in an extremely powerful and unique product.’

Under a  Phase 2 research and development contract awarded by the USN in 2019, Greensea was asked to create an accurate navigation and autonomy system for ship hull robots used to support proactive in-water cleaning.
