Inshore Surveys and Inspections
Municipal water supplies and hydro electric dams are key target users of ROVs which are ideal for the detailed inspection of inshore water reservoirs and tanks and lakes and rivers. Work can also extend to surveys of bridge foundations, piers, pylons, and support structures in ports.
ROV Innovations has a range of Seamor ROV models ideally suited to such work on lakes and rivers where small, rugged and versatile equipment is needed.
Seamor ROVs have proven invaluable in a wide variety of inshore uses, such as detecting pipeline defects, foreign objects in the system, pipeline collapses, and sediment build up, which could contaminate water supplies. The use of ROVs can increase safety and inspection quality, cut plant downtime, and also reduce costs.
This video is an abridged freshwater dam inspection carried out in central Queensland, Australia. The original video was shot with a High Definition Seamor ROV in 1080p25 format. Being in a freshwater dam, the water was extremely turbid with visibility only approx 20cm. The Secuquest Vision Clear Enhancement hardware was used to increase underwater visibility, and restore natural colouration to the underwater assets.
