Underwater Specialist

OceanOptics ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) is a specialist provider of underwater inspections and services. Our unique array of systems and quality services allows our team to deliver a broad range of benefits to our clients.

Our ROVs provide full High Definition (HD) footage collation and real time viewing for our client, where and when required. Having ‘eyes in the water’ in areas such as, ships ballast tanks, large civil water storage tanks and reservoirs, ports, harbours and rivers, limits WH&S requirements, saves down time (no need for on-site shut downs) and eliminates confined space entry permits.

Our ROVs can also be our client’s ‘eyes in the water’ in dangerous environments where there are natural predators; saltwater crocodiles and Irukandji box jellyfish found in Northern Australian waters; great white sharks in Southern and Western Australian waters. Our specialist ROVs can also operate in extremely cold waters and at high altitude, further reducing risk.

The team at OceanOptics has evolved from personal passion, bringing together skills and experience in operations within these natural environments. They provide professional uniformity, ingenuity, safety and awareness, backed by knowledge in the field. Our services and commitment, together with ROV latest technology, delivers quality outcomes such as:

  • Improved data collection – advanced clarity of ROV footage collection and fast processing techniques, providing improved inspection and monitoring capabilities, giving OceanOptics the ability to monitor any changes over time, through regular and routine inspections for our client, for example; ships anode and routine infrastructure inspections with comparison to earlier inspection footage.
  • Rapid mobilisation and deployment – our professional team and equipment are ready for mobilisation via work vehicles, chartered helicopter or commercial airlines at short notice, as required.
  • No need for diver support teams and vessels – mini ROVs deploy directly from ships, platforms and wharfs without the need for dive support vessels. With minimal disruptions to our clients operations, work can still carry on with the ROV in the water.
  • Reduces the need for commercial divers, manned entry and confined space entry permits which in turn greatly reduces WH&S issues on the work site.
  • Minimised risk – especially reduces the health and safety risk for underwater work by the elimination of high risk activities to personnel and greatly limits the environmental impact caused by divers in sensitive aquatic environments.
