Kiel 6000 ROV Gets Certified by Germanischer Lloyd

Tuesday, January 08, 2008
The Kiel 6000 ROV manufactured by Schilling Robotics, has been certified by Ger¬manischer Lloyd (GL) as meeting requirements for safety and environmental impact. The technical monitoring group GL has conducted safety surveys of thousands of ships and several ROVs, but the survey of the Kiel 6000 is the firm’s first of a work-class ROV and of an unmanned vehicle with a 6000-meter depth rating. The ROV will join the ranks of high-profile GL-certified subsea vehicles such as the 6000-meter, deep-diving, manned MIR submersibles. The ROV is owned by the Leibniz Institute of Marine Science (IFM-Geomar) at the University of Kiel. While in the service of the university, the ROV’s primary role will be marine research. GL reviewed a comprehensive series of tests on the ROV, and GL representatives were present during factory acceptance testing at Schilling Robotics’ headquarters in Davis, California. During testing of the ROV, GL monitored the integrity of the vehicle and its components under pressure at different depths and tested various safety factors in the design.
