Having worked closely with the University before to design and build custom pressure housings, OceanTools subsequently chose SEACON (europe) Ltd distributor Bowtech Products, as the company of choice for their specialist subsea connectivity and design.
This resulted in an optical hybrid mateable connector which has been fitted to the main ROV umbilical and junction pod. This connects using a range of other SEA CON connectors to the three other subsea pods on this specialist ROV.
Bowtech Products Ltd is the appointed distributor for SEACON (europe) Ltd for nearly twenty years.
