International Submarine Engineering Ltd. delivered a new Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) and Tether Management System (TMS) to Fukada Salvage and Marine Works Co. Ltd.
Fukada’s HYSUB 100HP ROV is a multipurpose vehicle that will be used for scientific and commercial purposes as well as inspecting and salvaging seafloor items. Designed to operate from one of Fukada’s new research vessels, the ROV has a 2,000-meter depth rating. The ROV is equipped with thrusters, sensors, six lights, eight cameras, ISE’s Magnum Manipulator and other auxiliary equipment needed to carry out the vast requirements for Fukada’s subsea operations.
The new HYSUB ROV complements Fukada’s existing fleet of ISE ROVs, renamed HAKUYO, that includes a 150HP 3,000-meter depth ROV, as well as their recently built Explorer Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs).
To accommodate their expanding fleet of ROVs, Fukada received a new ROV handling system built by Hawboldt Industries out of Nova Scotia, Canada.
