DeepOcean AS, the subsea services provider, is exhibiting on Stand 314 at Oceanology International 2008 in London, March 11-13. Technicians from General Robotics Limited, the manufacturer of the ROVolution ROV simulator, will be present on the stand to demonstrate the applications of the simulator. This represents an outstanding opportunity, both to see a demonstration of ROVolution's capabilities and to learn how DeepOcean has applied ROVolution to its own ROV pilot training and scenario planning.
"With ROVolution we believe we have a simulator that pays for itself - more qualified pilots, can be deployed more flexibly which is making our off-shore operations more efficient," said Sven Storesund, Superintendent ROV/Survey at DeepOcean. "We can give existing pilots refresher and scenario training onshore. A unique aspect of the simulator is that you can play around with new techniques which would be prohibitively expensive, and possibly dangerous, using the ROV for real."
DeepOcean will also be showing a beta copy of GRL's DeepLive offshore monitoring software that shows advanced 3D visualisations in real-time.
"We are delighted that DeepOcean is taking our simulation software to the next level with upgrades to ROVolution and evaluating pre-release versions of the DeepLive offshore software platform," said Dr Jason Tisdall, Managing Director, General Robotics Limited. "We are also gratified that DeepOcean is publicly demonstrating its use of General Robotics' products."
