Underwater Inspection with an ROV drone Underwater surveys of tanks, ships, bridges, culverts, piers and other marine assets.

Submersible drones are the future of underwater inspections

Previously being the territory of divers, Underwater inspection with an ROV drone are now more often assigned to modern efficient micro-ROVs. Without the risk to human life and at a fraction of the cost of sending divers down, this makes sense. There is no compromise on quality either. Our submersible drone service is the quickest, safest and most cost-effective method to gather information on your underwater assets Our team of experienced and certified operators is equipped with the latest technology in ROVs to perform detailed inspections of pipes, tanks, bridges, piers, dams and other marine infrastructure, all while minimizing risk to personnel and saving you time and money.

Visual inspections

Underwater ROVs are equipped with high-quality cameras that capture real-time video footage of underwater structures and equipment. The operator can control the ROV's movement and orientation, allowing for detailed inspections of underwater assets.

Infrastructure inspection

ROVs are used for the inspection of underwater infrastructure such as tanks, water works, bridges, dams, and ports. These inspections help identify potential issues such as cracks, corrosion, and damage, enabling timely repairs and maintenance to ensure the safety and longevity of these structures.

Increased safety

Increased safety

Using an underwater drone for inspections eliminates the need for human divers to go into the water, which can be dangerous in certain environments. ROVs can operate in harsh conditions such as strong currents, low visibility, and extreme depths, without putting human divers at risk.

ROVs are a cost-effective solution for underwater inspections as they eliminate the need for expensive dive equipment and can be operated remotely, reducing the need for a large team of divers and support personnel.
