SMD Hydrovision - News - June 18, 2005

Quantum WROV delivered to QinetiQ

SMD Hydrovision’s (SMDH) new QUANTUM ROV System has been recently delivered to QinetiQ in the UK for torpedo recovery and range maintenance operations. The system consists of a 16ft compact control/power cabin, SMDH A-Frame/winch and QUANTUM WROV with torpedo recovery package. It has been installed and commissioned at the Butec range in Scotland and successfully completed a number of sea trials including simulated torpedo recovery using a special clamp arrangement.

The 125 SHP QUANTUM - which is classed as a heavy duty construction WROV - performed better than expected posting a bollard pull of 830kgf using it’s new Curvetech HTE 380BA thrusters. Maximum speed easily exceeded 3 knots which is even more impressive considering the vehicle is equipped with dredge skid, full auxiliary tooling circuit and 46 hydraulic channels provided by a variety of 4, 8, 10 and 12 function Curvetech intelligent valve packs. This ROV also boasts an 8 camera capability, quad pan/tilt setup, 350kg payload and abundance of acoustic survey instruments.

With the QUANTUM WROV, SMDH have succeeded in combining high performance with heavy tooling capability in a compact package that permits easy access for maintenance. The inclusion of the new PC based distributed vehicle control system (DVECS) brings new levels of simplicity from reduced subsea electronics and harness size with powerful built in features such as survey software and user programmable touch screen controls.

These features result is a new breed of competent and versatile Work Class ROV suitable for construction and survey in oil & gas, military and scientific industries.

For all enquiries about the QUANTUM ROV, other Work Class ROV systems in the Q-Series range and information about CURVETECH ROV building blocks, please contact our sales team.
