Hello to everyone!

Our company is about to purchase an Observe class ROV.
What are main differences in those manufactures?
What are their advantages and disadvantages?
Which one of them got are more smooth motion without jumps and flicks.
What about their control?

All of your answers will be much appreciated.

This type of thing has been discussed on here in the past and you will find this information if you search the site. I could search for you, but I have other things on my mind at present. Use the search box to the top left of the site.

First things first though. You should start by telling us what you want to achieve.


What are you planning on doing work wise?
Popping the ROV into a 1m horizontal tunnel?
Seabed surveys?
Platform and pipeline inspection from a ship?
Working in harbours?
What kind of operating conditions do you anticipate (Depth, Weather, Currents Visibility - inshore, offshore)?

jamesmc,

Thank you for recommendations, but before writing a post, I've read all the topics about Seaeye vs Sub-Atlantics. I've found a couple of great advices for me, but got those new questions above.

Obs ROV is for seabed survey.
Offshore.
Depths 0-1500m (may be 2000m).
Couldn't say about currents.
Locations are Baltic Sea, North Sea, Norway Sea, Barents Sea.
Of course weather will be (spring, summer) as best as it possibly can (0-2m wave high).

IMHO Seaeye would be your best route:

Seaeye Falcon is out - rated to 300m water depth.
Seaeye tiger is out - rated to -1000m water depth.

I'd consider the Seeye Lynx
Rated to -1500m

For the areas you are intending to operate in I would strongly suggest Seaeye's Type 8 Tether Management System (TMS), which provides a 200 metre excursion radius.

Try free swimming offshore with a small vehicle such as this and it will all end in tears!

Simple is better even at deeper depths. Seaeye is great and so is Sub-Atlantic but you have to have technical background to work on the systems.
