Remotely Operated Vehicles

 An ROV can be a big help to a water utility operator. There are two basic types of ROV’s to consider: a Submarine type that has propellers for movement, or a crawler type with wheels or tracks. Our Sub ROV’s are excellent tools for underwater inspections. The ability to inspect the facility while it remains full of water saves time, water and money.

Our crawler ROV we call WALLIE, is equipped with a cleaning tip and has the ability to remotely remove sediment and works in water depth up to 165 feet. This makes WALLIE an excellent way to clean standpipes. Removing tank sediment  is essential to maintain water quality standards. Keeping tanks free of sediment removes the habitat that bacteria, protozoa and even viruses can use to get a foothold in your tank, grow, and become a larger problem. After we clean water storage tanks, our customers tell us they use less chemicals to maintain water quality standards. Our potable water dive crew is available to clean GSTs or ESTs, and WALLIE is ready to clean your STANDPIPE water storage  Call today to find out how we can help your utility.

June 2013 Test of New Remotely Operated Vehicle for Tank Inspections

June 19, 2013 Leave a comment

Our first use of the DEEP TREKKER ROV was successful.   We were able to get to the back of a 500,000 gallon potable water storage tank and see sediment level and interior conditions of roof support Columbus and walls.   The second inspection we did was on a one million gallon ground storage tank. We added a safety rope to protect the tether and found the lighting system caused a little bit of glare when we went into darker parts of the tank, but it was reduced when we got closer to the inspection points we needed to look at. Overall, we found it to be a very good inspection tool!
