OCTOBER 2018 3D UNDERWATER LASER SCANNING OF PIPELINES IN PNG

AUS-ROV has performed underwater laser scanning of internal pipeline surfaces in order to provide baseline survey data modelling defects on the pipes internal surface. With repeat periodic surveys we can overlay models and quantify any extent of material loss to determine a rate of deterioration on critical infrastructure. With the sub-millimeter accuracy of the 2G Robotics ULS200 in optimal conditions, AUS-ROV can provide levels of certainty for underwater inspection of assets that our clients and partners want. AUS-ROV are world leaders in mini-ROV systems and deliver advanced technological solutions to engineering and environmental problems.

NOVEMBER 2016 DIVER SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS MEANS WORK WITH AUS-ROV AT BURRENDONG DAM

Considerable safety factors must be considered when commercially diving to a depth of 40m at high altitudes in remote locations. AUS-ROV was engaged to inspect the condition of the intake tower cold water pollution screen at Burrendong Dam in NSW. There was no safer alternative solution than to deploy a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV). Water industries in Australia set high safety standards, so given the technical requirements of the project AUS-ROV was the number one recommendation to the client. AUS-ROV are experts in ROV Dam Inspection Methodology within Australia and the Pacific Region. AUS-ROV effectively mobilise, deploy and identify where reaction time is of the essence.

OCTOBER 2016 HIGH RESOLUTION SONAR AND HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO ROV TUNNEL INSPECTION

AUS-ROV has completed site civil structure ROV inspections as part of a scheduled power station outage for Origin Energy. The station shutdown enabled AUS-ROV access to critical cooling water infrastructure via remote access using ROV. AUS-ROV orchestrated two simultaneous ROV inspection teams to carry out the site inspection works which included custom built very high-resolution 3D sonar imaging of a 2km tunnel, four 260m caissons, 600m of canals and a pump chamber which houses six 2m diameter cooling water pumps and their associated trash screens. Where investigation into assets considered critical path is of utmost importance, AUS-ROV stands capable, experienced and ready.

APRIL 2016 ROV INSPECTION OF BABAGON DAM IN MALAYSIAN BORNEO WITH GRAY DIVING SERVICES

AUS-ROV partnered with Gray Diving Services to provide ROV inspection services and expert insight into the condition of Babagon Dam which supplies water to the city of Kota Kinabalu in Malaysian Borneo. After a recent earthquake, dam management exercised due diligence in ensuring the dam be inspected to comply with the dam safety management process. Through examination from ROV captured video and above water visual inspection, dam engineers made assertive conclusion that the dam structure was in good condition with allowable seepage  levels and no signs of leaking through the joints obvesrved below the water line.

SEPTEMBER 2012 GILBERT DIVING & AUS-ROV COLLABORATION FOR GOLD COAST DESALINATION ALLIANCE

AUS-ROV performed an offshore operation with diver assistance to undertake inspections of the Gold Coast Desalination Plant's seawater intake riser approximately 2km off Tugun Beach. The dive team from Gilberts Diving Services removed the access panel to the intake structure and assisted AUS-ROV's SeaBotix LBV200 ROV with conducting an internal visual inspection of the concrete riser and tunnel. Objectives were to identify levels of marine growth, presence of sea life, structural integrity of the concrete casing and sediment buildup in the sump at the bottom of the riser at a water depth of 90m. Gilberts divers conducted weld and sacrificial anode inspections around the intake dome structure as the ROV performed the inspection inside the tunnel.

AUGUST 2012 FIRE WATER TANK INSPECTION AS1851-2012 ROUTINE INSPECTION & MAINTENANCE OF FIRE SERVICE EQUIPMENT

AUS-ROV Underwater Inspections have considerable experience in inspection of Fire Service Tanks across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia. Recently, industry has shifted focus toward the importance of human lives on work sites throughout Australia and with ever growing easier access to innovative technology, ROV's are quickly becoming the norm when conducting inspections in liquid filled confined spaces. We consider it a zero risk to human life process as we deploy our ROV inside the confined space of Fire Water Tanks to inspect the internal condition of all components and identify sediment depths. If your Fire Service Tanks or Potable Drinking Water Tanks require inspection and maintenance then remember that Remotely Operated Vehicles ROVs pose zero threat to human safety.

AUGUST 2012 ROV INSPECTION OF GOLD COAST DESALINATION PLANT INFRASTRUCTURE

AUS-ROV was successful in bidding for a tender to perform ROV inspections at the Gold Coast Desalination Plant. The pre-treatment water tanks under inspection perform flocculation where destabilised particles conglomerate into larger aggregates so that they can be separated from the pre-treated water. This processing ensures unwanted fine particles and minerals in the water are removed before it enters the reverse osmosis system. It is important to ensure that all process infrastructure be inspected and maintained to mitigate against the disruption of water supply to residents of South East Queensland. ROV's allow inspection of infrastructure with minimal disturbance whilst removing the safety risks posed to commercial divers operating in a live system.

AUS-ROV PERFORMING ENVIRONMENTAL SURVEY ON SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND AND NORTHERN NSW REEFS

The SeaBotix LBV200 was put through it's paces whilst conducting an observational survey of benthic habitats at two local reefs off the South East Queensland Coast. The study was performed alongside research divers under taxing conditions with a surging ground swell and strong currents creating a difficult dive environment. Despite the conditions the SeaBotix fared well and AUS-ROV pilots captured some great video footage for the client. Setting up the ROV System on-board the work vessel was complete and ready to descend in under fifteen minutes. AUS-ROV achieved positioning of fish monitoring devices and retrieval of survey apperatus.
