ECA Group has received an order for an H300V ROV system from Technopole, the company announced on 28 November.
The system will be used by a Technopole’s client for inspecting hydraulic dams in Eastern Europe.
The H300V ROV is equipped with four vectored horizontal thrusters. It integrates a BV5000 imaging sonar system permitting 3D mapping of large areas within turbid waters and a Kraken Seavision 3D laser imaging system which generates high resolution 3D scans in full colour. Both sensors will be installed within the ROV’s frame so as to permit plug-and-play mounting and removal.
H300V can reach a speed of up to 3.5 knots and integrates in standard version one navigation black and white TV camera and one inspection colour zoom TV camera with optical zoom mounted on a pan and tilt unit that can support up to 15kg of payload. Combined with auto heading and auto depth functions, this ROV is capable of recording videos and data under strong currents at 300m depth.
