ROV Has Been Used In Offshore Wind Power
Aug 11, 2017



ROV, the unmanned remote submersible, the system consists of power propeller, remote control electronic communication device, black and white or color camera, the function is various, different types of ROV are used to perform different tasks, and are widely used in nuclear power, hydropower, marine oil, fishery, maritime salvage, ROV pipeline detection and marine scientific research. ROV is mainly divided into observation and operation level.

With the vigorous development of offshore wind power, the construction operation monitoring, ROV construction assistance and the flushing monitoring of the project later operation become more and more common. The ROV high idle rate and low cost caused by the cyclical recession of ocean engineering make ROV become an important possible means of offshore wind-water operation and monitoring.

The main advantages of ROV are high safety, saving construction time, ROV saving cost and checking quality. ROV has been used in offshore wind power abroad, but it is still almost empty in China. ROV scenarios that may be applied in offshore wind power include:

Underwater visual inspection. Including scour depth monitoring, J-type tube flare, marine biological attachment, the effectiveness of protection against erosion.

Jacket installation link. Auxiliary jacket position, guiding and inserting pile, ROV supporting grouting operation, completion of underwater cutting, underwater welding and other operations

Submarine Cable laying. ROV can carry underwater surveying equipment to investigate the location of sea cable routing, buried submarine cables, and later sea cable maintenance operations.

ROV has a design element for the UAV, but it can simulate fish swimming in the water. ROV installed three fans, the main fan is responsible for swinging up and down, ROV the other two fans are responsible for propulsion, under the action of these three fans, ROV can be under water free cheong. In addition, ROV also equipped with a lens, with waterproof function, this lens in addition to the unmanned aerial navigation, but also to capture the charm of the undersea scenery, love underwater shooting users should like.
