Schilling Robotics HD ROV targets IMR and drill support marketsVessel & ROV News // June 24, 2010
Schilling Robotics has announced the launch of the HD ROV. Schilling’s 125 shp HD system is currently completing deepwater sea trials and two HD systems have been ordered for delivery this year.
Said the company: "The HD employs Schilling Robotics’ innovative technology to bring a high performance work-class ROV system to the market that has a compact deck footprint, while providing design features and performance normally reserved for larger systems. The HD is designed for accommodating the specific needs of the Inspection, Maintenance, and Repair (IMR), drill support, and medium-duty construction markets."
The HD features Schilling’s power management system, remote diagnostics, and advanced automatic piloting modes that deliver superior operational stability and precise control. Based on integrated sub-systems, the HD reduces complexity, increases efficiency, and lowers the cost of owning and operating an ROV.
The HD includes dedicated interfaces for integrating intervention or survey tooling. Ergonomic and modular system design provides users with spacious access to the system for rapid maintenance, and the largest onboard capacity for installing additional intervention tools compared to any vehicle in this class.
Combined with Schilling’s electric TMS system, the HD is capable of excursions up to 425m. The compact system is configured for ease of road transportation and rapid mobilization, while providing the flexibility to perform a wide variety of deepwater operations.
