ROVs, an acronym for Remotely Operated Vehicle, are vehicles that are controlled by a human operator who is not physically inside the vehicle. They can be operated by radio signals or by a cable or line connecting the vehicle to the location of the human operator.
At Gibraldrone we use ROVs supplemented with sensors and operating arms to facilitate work at great depths.
They are also equipped with high-resolution cameras (4K) to obtain recordings that take into account the smallest details.
Monitor chemical contamination.
Inspecting, detecting and tracking marine pollution slicks.
Control illegal dumping of rubbish.
Supervise the construction of underwater banks.
Generate high-resolution seabed maps.
Facilitate the accessibility and execution of maritime operations, and increase the safety of the tasks of the personnel who have to perform them.
Revision of waste or sewage pipes, thus avoiding undesirable leaks.
Possibility of taking samples, monitoring salinity and PH.
Monitoring of the seabed, algae (e.g. posidonia), etc.
Monitoring of water temperature.
Equipment with 0 CO2 emissions
Minimises occupational risks for own or third party personnel, as it totally or partially avoids the use of divers in inspection and maintenance tasks.
Optimises response time for the analysis and possible resolution of incidents in assets that, due to being totally or partially submerged, are not accessible.
It reduces costs in the previous underwater tasks, as it is not necessary to subcontract teams of divers made up of several people.
ROV + Dron Thermal
An underwater robot (ROV) and a drone make it possible to make high-resolution digital video recordings both underwater and aerial. With these tools, apart from the visual check “in situ”, it is possible to simultaneously monitor different environmental parameters, such as the temperature and oxygen level of the water at different depths, see the currents, with the aim of optimising the feeding process, detect possible pathologies, anomalous situations in the installation and thus apply an early response.
