Sperre, Data Respons team up to develop next generation ROVsThe Norwegian subsea technology company Sperre has developed a revolutionary new generation of remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs). An advanced propulsion system, auto-tracking, and an ingenious multiple-tool platform mean that much is required of the controller, which was developed in collaboration with Data Respons Kongsberg.



A new generation of ROV, which has been given the designation H-ROV (Hybrid-ROV), is now in the final phase of development. This new generation will have a broad area of application because it has a more flexible propulsion system and a tool platform that can be equipped with up to four different tool configurations that can alternate underwater.

"The H-ROV will be particularly suitable for subsea DP and auto-traction operations," said Thor Olav Sperre, owner-director of Sperre AS.
