Moore's Law is the steam engine of the 21st century. Just as the steam engine made way for machines to replace muscle, serving as the catalyst for the Industrial Revolution, today the exponential increase in technology is leading to an evolution in robotics well beyond its original auto-manufacturing applications.

DOF Subsea UKDOF Subsea UK has utilised Sparrows’ 50T tensioner system during the recovery and installation of flexible risers / flowlines in the Dumbarton Field, approximately 220km north east of Aberdeen.

Deep Trekker DTG2 Worker ROV has successfully retrieved a 30ft intake pipe, resulting in 20,000 dollars of savings for one British Colombia based company. 
 


Aquaculture Net InspectionWhen a crane operator accidentally reeled in a pinched cable holding a 30ft intake pipe, the cable snapped, dropping both the pipe and the rigging block of the crane into 230 feet of open water. The loss of the pipe itself, along with the added down-time and delays involved to retrieve the pipe could have cost the company approximately $20,000 to their project without the help of the Deep Trekker DTG2 Worker ROV.          The project by West Coast FishCulture a division of AgriMarine Technologies Inc. (ATI) in British Colombia, Canada was to install a new enclosure tank system ATI is developing for rearing fish in the aquaculture industry. The design places a 3’ by 30’ intake pipe under the rearing tank to bring up the cooler water from greater depths to circulate throughout the enclosure. This cooler water can hold more oxygen than the warmer, ambient water surrounding the tank which improves the health of the fish by providing a better oxygenated environment.  Want to know more about the DTG2?
