AC-CESS Co UK Ltd (Aberdeen, Scotland) is delighted to announce the sale of a AC-ROV Underwater Inspection System to J.S. Dykkerservice (Haugesund, Norway).
Founded in 1965, J.S. Dykkerservice (JSD) offers "all round" commercial diving services to the onshore / inshore market. Owned by ex-military diver Mr John Skarholm, the AC-ROV purchase enables JSD to offer their clients a rapid deployment inspection capability that generates high quality video footage of targets previously beyond the company's service offering.
Øystein Skarholm of JSD is enjoying getting to know their latest acquisition.
"The AC-ROV is a very interesting piece of kit, the vehicle mobility, robustness and camera footage quality really sets it apart from other systems we looked at. JSD will be deploying the vehicle in a duel role capacity: as a stand alone ROV for inspection applications and as the ideal diver companion for the onshore / inshore markets we serve."
The 120 meter tethered AC-ROV will be immediately deployed on two cable inspection jobs in the Haugesund region. Firstly the unit will inspect a gas line cable lying at 40 meters depth that is thought to have been damaged by ship anchor movement. The second job involves the inspection of a fibre optic cable lying at 75 meters depth that has become unstable due to seabed shelf interference.
