Oil and Energy

Deep Trekker portable ROV systems have been used to do inspections at nuclear power plants, including water tanks, in-water equipment, and in reactor. Inspecting penstock and trash gates at hydroelectric stations is made simple, with no need to carry a generator or find a power supply near the inspection area. Undersea installations at sea-based wind and solar installations can easily be done from the boat with the one-man carry ROV systems. Even when divers are needed in the water for repairs or inspections, Deep Trekker mini ROVs offer peace of mind by being an extra set of eyes in the water for safety, security, and guidance. Our years of experience providing ROVs for these operations have helped us to refine our models into the perfect tools for oil & energy-related needs.

Using Mini ROVs in Hydroelectricity

Hydroelectric power is a renewable energy source that uses water to generate electricity. A mini remote operated vehicle can perform fast, efficient energy structure inspections of hydroelectric dam intakes to detect foreign objects that could cause blockage. They can also conduct trash rack inspection and removal of smaller debris. Additionally, mini ROVs can assist in hydroelectric dam reservoir evaluation to mitigate environmental damage.

Power Plant Inspections

ROVs are also beneficial when used to conduct coal-fired and nuclear power plant inspection tasks. The ROV serves as a water tank inspection robot that can assist in monitoring the condition of the water tanks and tubes that are essential for ensuring the efficient, safe operation of these facilities. It is equipped with a specially designed tank inspection camera to help detect signs of blockage.

An ROV can even be used for nuclear reactor inspection tasks. In addition to their superior water tank inspection capabilities, ROVs can often avoid costly draining and downtime.

Oil and Gas Inspections

ROVs are now standard equipment at many offshore oil and gas drilling sites. A remote operated vehicle provides a cost-effective and safe method for conducting undersea oil rig inspection tasks. Small ROVs from Deep Trekker can easily maneuver to perform visual inspections of the platform, legs, valves, moon pools, water tanks, and support vessels.

With the increasing emphasis placed on the oceanic environment, an ROV can play an important role in assessing the health of the ecosystem that surrounds an offshore oil or gas rig.

Solar and Wind Installation Inspections

Offshore wind and solar power farms are now being built in many parts of the world. An offshore ROV can assist in the wind and solar installation inspection process by assessing the underwater environment, remotely monitoring the underwater construction process, and inspecting the infrastructure upon completion of a new installation.
