US-based supplier JW Fishers reminds that ROV deployment may prove safer & cheaper than diving.

The company quote many examples to back up their statement, including one where the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) use a Fishers SeaLion-2 to help in underwater maintenance of Ice Harbor Lock and Dam in Washington State.The dam is more than 2,800 feet long and 100 feet high and provides hydroelectric generation, recreation, and irrigation for the area’s residents and businesses.

One of the tools helping the Corps in its inspection and maintenance operations is Fishers SeaLion ROV. The engineers have been using this system for more than 20 years and recently upgraded to the new smaller, lighter, and faster SeaLion-2 with high resolution color cameras in both front and rear.

In addition to USACE, customers include VEIT in the Midwest, HT Marine in Chipley, and Jotun in Norway.

Some other organisations using Fishers’ ROV’s listed by the company: Port of Los Angeles, Aberdeen-based Sigma Offshore, Guangzhou Maritime College in China, Narwhal Environmental Consulting in Canada, Beijing Hydrosurvey, Fall River Police Department in Massachusetts, Colville Confederated Tribes in Washington, Saratoga County Sheriff in NY, Dubai Police in United Arab Emirates, and universities in Alaska, Maine, and Saudi Arabia.
