New ROV Tools for Deep Sea Mining Monitoring
Global environmental monitoring and sediment sampling experts Ocean Scientific International Ltd (OSIL) have augmented its offering of deep sea sampling equipment for remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV) with a multiple water sample collection system with inbuilt water quality monitoring.
OSIL’s range of ROV tools now not only includes the instrumented water sample collection system, but also an undisturbed sediment sampling system, an instrumented pressure activated camera system, and a deep sea solenoid actuator, which can be adapted to suit application requirements.
The ROV tools are designed for ease of mounting and systems can be daisy-chained together to create a sampling network that is ideal for rapid assessment work.
All ROV tools are rated to 6,000m and have a wide range of potential applications including monitoring deep sea mineral retrieval and oil and gas operations, scientific exploration and environmental impact assessments.
