SeaBotix LBV - 5 months, 1300 dives, 200 hours and NO Downtime

The LBV systems operating in Port Lincoln, Australia continue to work hard. There are now eight LBV150S2 systems in Port Lincoln inspecting close to 90% of the Tuna fish pens. In particular West Coast Diving operates their two LBV150S2 systems (with Brush-Less DC thrusters) which have accumulated more than 1,300 dives this season, adding to the 2,300 from last season, bringing the total to close to 5,000 dives.

Using the LBV for fish pen inspections is more efficient and less expensive than using divers. Plus there is no human risk with the high danger of Great White sharks in the area. The LBVs are a quick and efficient means of monitoring the conditions of the fish nets to ensure no fish escape and no predators enter. Also, some of the LBVs are used to retrieve "Mort" fish.

LBV continues to be the only ROV used in Port Lincoln due to its high capability, rapid deployment and impressive reliability.

LBV wins multiple awards at Seawork 2005

Echoscan Ltd. of England recently established a new survey and charter division called Searov. To promote the new division Searov exhibited at the Seawork 2005 show in Southampton earlier this month. A panel of "mystery judges" examined all the exhibitors products to determine the best solutions in various categories.

LBV won it's category in the "Spirit of Innovation, Underwater Technology" and came runner up in the overall diving related category. This was an excellent result considering the many other ROVs and underwater technology competitors.
Searov demonstrated the LBV150L2 system with internal LEDs, sonar and grabber.

9 more LBV systems sold into Russia

SeaBotix agent in Russia, Tetis Pro, recently sold nine more systems into various agencies in Russia making the total in Russia thirteen. Three LBV150S2 systems were ordered by the Rescue Ministry for Search & Rescue, these added to the LBV150S system they already have. Each of the systems are equipped with sonar and tracking. Four LBV150S2 systems were ordered by another Russian agency for diver support, inspections and various underwater tasks. These systems are also fitted with sonar and grabber. The same agency also ordered a LBV600XL2 system for deeper operations where rapid deployment is critical. Finally, the ninth LBV150S2 system went to a commercial client for surveys and inspections. Each of the nine systems are equipped with a Russian (Cyrillic) keypad and custom topside console with CRT monitor, VCR and hand controller.

SolidWorks chooses LBV for Design Excellence

The SolidWorks Corporation which supplies the world's leading 3D engineering software has chosen LBV for its excellence in design and asked that SeaBotix and the LBV be present at their most recent expo in Vasteras, Sweden. This comes as a great honor to SeaBotix as only a few products are selected for the prime showcase at the SolidWorks expositions.

At the show in Sweden attendees from all over the world were able to operate the LBV in a special demonstration tank, ask questions of on site staff and also sit in on a presentation about how LBV was designed. The LBV was the most popular product on display.

The LBV was designed completely in SolidWorks as all are the new developments and accessories.

Oceaneering takes delivery of 2 LBV1500F “fly out” systems

Oceaneering of Aberdeen, Scotland ordered two of the SeaBotix LBV1500F2 complete "fly out" systems earlier in the year. They have recently been delivered for operations in Angola. The systems are being integrated into a specially made tool skid and mounted to the Oceaneering SCV WCROVs.

With a depth rating of 1,500 meters (5,000ft) the "fly out" systems are an ideal offshore solution to an extra set of eyes.
