Antares RD ROV APPLICATIONS

The use of an Antares RD ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) provides alternatives that are not limited by standard material removal methodology.

In-Service Material Removal is a limitless area where robotics can perform the previously unimaginable.
• Cost benefits of a vessel remaining in service vs. the time and cost of removing it from service
• The ability to perform maintenance material reduction and volume restoration on a prescheduled basis
• Material Removal and Disposal opportunities never before possible without shutdown

Internal Floating Roof Maintenance and Inspection without human entry of the confined space.
• Camera inspections of individual roof components and sealing systems
• Removal of pontoon lids and pumping of any liquid materials from pontoons to verify structural integrity
• Ability to remove fugitive material accumulated on internal roof due to seal burp or failure
• All functions can be easily accomplished regardless of tank condition and/or internal roof integrity

Bulk Material Removal regardless of vessel conditions, integrity or internal roof height
• A single ROV is designed to replace and significantly outperform an entire tank cleaning crew
• ROVs are unaffected by Tank Conditions/Integrity, LEL Levels or IHDL Conditions
• Systems are fully adaptable to perform material removal under changing conditions

*All functions can be easily accomplished regardless of material viscosity, density or abrasiveness in addition to Carbon Steel or Stainless Steel vessels.
