Collaborators Make ROVs Smaller and More User-friendly

VideoRay, a world leader in inspection-class ROVs, are a prime example.For these vehicles, Norwegian Doppler specialist Nortek deployed its DVL1000 Doppler Velocity Log in collaboration with both VideoRay and Vermont’s Greensea Systems – which supplied the OPENSEA operational software platform, inertial navigation, and an autonomous control system for the ROV – to create a versatile, powerful and extremely compact vehicle. In fact, it’s small enough to be checked on to an airplane as luggage.The Defender is part of VideoRay’s Mission Specialist Series (MSS) of ROVs

boxes ranging in size from 18.5 x 20 x 3.6 meters to 29.5 x 20 x 4.5 meters can be raised with compressed air in just 30 minutes, creating on short notice a barrier able to withstand incoming high water levels up to three meters above normal. ABB’s market-leading Symphony Plus automation software platform will control the raising and lowering of the barriers according to pre-set parameters whenever high water approaches or leaves the lagoon. Further to that, ABB will also provide an integrated electrical automation solution enabling remote operators to control the power network thus ensuring
