Reaping the benefit of being the only mini ROV manufacturer that does “WET” exhibitions, the AC-ROV wowed visitors and exhibitors alike for the 3 day Southampton show. Having the product confidence to allow ROV novices to pilot the unit in their demo tank over the 3 days, was commented as giving the company the busiest stand in the “Dive Work” section of the exhibition. Enabling potential buyers to gain first hand experience of the AC-ROV’s complete freedom of movement and ease of operation stimulated unmatched interest at a show that was well represented by other mini ROV’s. A couple of minutes had the single case system transported and set up at the purpose built dive tank (provided by Searchwise Aberdeen), this allowed a couple of extremely interested clients to get a more representative impression of the AC-ROV, gaining first hand experience of how easy the single handed control system and complete freedom of movement facilitates top quality inspection in confined environments.
Users were further wowed when shown the single large briefcase size “storm” case which the entire AC-ROV system is transported in. Being the only mini ROV system on the market that comes in one case was seen as a major plus by many at the exhibition, with clients hitting on the fact that the system is the only true one man operated system in the mini ROV market.
AC-CESS would like to thank all stand visitors for the very encouraging feedback given to this next generation underwater inspection system, fellow exhibitors for their generous comments about the high level design evidenced by the system and the organisers for their efforts in providing such a targeted showcase for the AC-ROV’s unmatched capabilities.
