Divetech Ltd are located in Nova Scotia, Canada, the company is owned and operated by Mike Roberts, an experienced commercial diver & ROV pilot.
Our ROV is available for rapid mobilization Canada wide, minimal operating space needed.
The Phantom HD 2 ROV system is operated from a self contained enclosed road towable trailer which doubles as an inspection suite and workshop which incorporates, lights, power outlets and heating and can be operated from shore or clients vessel , alternately we have several suitable vessels available to us which can act as a safe, stable operating platform.
Our ROV system does not only out perform divers on cost but does not suffer the problem of depth or major limitation of decompression it just keeps on working, reduces a job that might take weeks to a matter of days.
The Video Ray Pro 3 XE GTO system includes the 8-pound submersible, control box, 500 ft of neutral Professional Performance tether, Tritech Micron 675khz sonar, Micro Manipulator manual, and tool kit.
All components fit neatly in two watertight, rolling Pelican cases that fit easily in the trunk of a car or in airline luggage compartments.
The entire system is stored in the Pelican cases and weighs less than 43 kg (95 lbs).
ROV systems are used extensively worldwide by the police, coastguard, military, television companies, and the offshore industry.
Our ROV and team are ready for immediate mobilization 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
In many areas, engineering inspections and maintenance surveys are dreaded and often put off for lack of funding. Sending divers into structures, pipelines, drinking water tanks, etc has long been the practice for inspecting the structures, but it is dangerous and can pose health risks. Now, more clients are looking into alternative methods to conduct inspections and surveys that can co-exist with divers and make photographic and video inspections safer, more affordable, and more frequent.
“This mini remote control underwater vehicle is the most effective, safest and economical way to carry out subsea inspection work today”
We have the answer...
High-Resolution Side Scan Sonar Surveys
The StarFish range has gained worldwide recognition as the most compact, affordable, towed side scan sonars for the professional underwater survey industry. The full-body, three-fin, hydrodynamic design of the StarFish systems challenge the common cylindrical or torpedo-shape of traditional side scan sonars. The unique shape of the StarFish systems dramatically improves the stability of the sonar and consequently the quality of the images it produces. Furthermore, the advanced digital CHIRP (Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse) acoustic techniques used by StarFish systems offer better range resolution compared to conventional, fixed-frequency side scan sonars. Building on the success of the original StarFish 450F, the StarFish 990F is the ultimate high-resolution side scan sonar for extreme image definition and target detection. The sonar uses a high frequency 1MHz CHIRP transmission with extremely narrow horizontal acoustic beam to provide the sharpest, most defined images. With 35m range capability on each channel (70m total swathe coverage), the sonar is ideal for high-resolution survey in ports & harbours, inland waterways such as rivers and canals and excels when used for SAR (Search And Recovery/Rescue) operations.
