-The Hercules is a development of the highly successful Clansman deepwater drill support ROV system and is the latest workclass vehicle designed and built by Subsea 7, featuring many in house developed technical innovations together with industry leading components.

-The vehicle has a 120hp hydraulics system and is rated to 3,000msw. Together with four axial and four vertical thrusters, the vehicle is highly manoeuvrable and extremely proficient when operating in high current conditions an ability further enhanced by the addition of a Tether Management System (TMS). A through-frame lift capability of three tonnes @ 4g (equivalent to four tonnes @ 3g) allows the deployment
and operation of large, skid-mounted tooling packages.

-A triple wire-armoured lift umbilical is used to transmit data and high voltage electrical power to the vehicle. Fibre optic technology is used for data and video transmission allowing the system to be interfaced to a wide range of tooling equipment and survey sensors.



We try to provide the most up to date, recent specifications on these ROV systems. However, ROV system specifications are changing all the time, so please double check with the manufacturer to insure the specifications are correct before making a decision in using or purchasing these systems.
