The Goliath system was our first successful M-ROV design which proved the concept and has become a reliable work horse ever since. The first operation for the system was a hull crack repair in 2016. Ever after, Remotion have been developing new M-ROV systems to be able to take on a wide range of operations related to FPSO hulls, such as:
- Subsea hull crack repairs
- Plug- installation and removal
- Inspections under demanding conditions
- Offshore hull cleaning
- Hull coating preparation and applying of coating (RoboCoat System)
All of Remotion`s M-ROV systems are equipped with an Emergency Release System (EQD), which ensures that the M-ROV can be detached and retained under any conditions.
Remotion has two categories of systems; belt driven and 4×4 wheel drive systems. Both uses permanent magnets to achieve a high traction force onto the hull, abeling the systems to carry relatively high loads.
Our systems can operate in and below the splash zone. The designes has a low profile and large footprint to reduce the hydrodynamic drag, enabling them to operate in the splash zone in up to 5m Hs wave conditions. The smart drive units design on our enables them to tackle most of the geometries of subsea structures and hulls.
The M-ROV systems come on-board in a compact package, compared to conventional ROVs. The part of an M-ROV system package are the M-ROV vehicle, a 15ft container, a safety wire and an umbilical winch.
The systems can be launched via Remotion`s Launch & Revovery System or by use of a crane.
