AUS-ROV have just recovered approximately $120,000 worth of environmental monitoring equipment offshore of Port Hacking, Sydney, NSW. The scientific mooring was deployed months ago and has been collecting a range of data from the ocean floor. A hydrophone is used to communicate with the mooring however the recovery buoy release mechanism failed to activate and float a recovery line to the surface. AUS-ROV used the vLBV300 with 2 function manipulator to attach a rope and recover the device. Conditions weren't favourable as the Australian Eastern Current was already running strong for the season. The mission was a difficult one but yet again AUS-ROV have proven themselves to be the best ROV service provider on the East Coast of Australia.
