ROV-system II is container-based, and can be operated from practically anywhere with access to power and water.
The 20”-container contains – aside from the ROV itself – an operation room, office, workshop w/ reserve parts, and a winch for cable.
ARGUS Mariner 2 is a medium class electric work-ROV, with 6 powerful, brushless thrusters for secure and stable operation down to 1000 m. The ROV is almost identical to the Argus Mariner 1, and they are interchangeable when required for additional operational safety.
The ROV has two manipulating arms, as well as options for mounting and operating several additional hydraulic tools.
Sonars, several cameras, lights and underwater navigational equipment makes it well-suited to work operations, inspections, search and mapping.
All route data is saved within the ROV’s onboard computers, and is available for later documentation of routes, search areas and similar.
