The Comanche comes complete with A-frame Launch and Recovery Systems, 20 hp Hydraulic Power Unit and over 9,000 feet of main lift umbilical. With its 15 kw/20 hp HPU, the SeaTrepid Comanche ROV system provides exceptional tooling capabilities and has been designed for the following tasks among others:
•Construction IRM – cleaning, cutting, jetting, dredging and NDT applications
•Well Intervention – AX/VX gasket change out, BOP shutdown, hot stab operations, Class 1-4 torque tools
•Survey – Pipe and cable tracking, single and dual head multi-beam sonars, sub-bottom profiling, pipe profile sonars, leak sensor
Additionally, when compared with hydraulic work-class systems, the Comanche provides important customer benefits with regard to capital and operational expenditure, simplicity of use and requires less deck space.
