Inspection class ROVs

James Fisher Subsea has a wide range of inspection class ROVs available for detailed subsea visual asset inspections.

JF Subsea has a large fleet of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), deployment systems, and personnel as part of its in-house capability, delivering efficient and fully integrated solutions.

JF Subsea also develops bespoke solutions to meet its customers’ exacting needs in challenging environments. In the offshore renewables industry, we're able to utilise experienced multi-skilled personnel and can support, not just diving and ROV specific solutions, but also rope access and confined space services.

Operating for 30 years’ in the offshore renewable market, our inspection class ROVs are configured for free swimming modes, complete with A60 Zone 2 control containers and A60 Zone 2 gravity based crane LARS, enabling a safe solution for visual subsea asset inspections.

Utilised by JF Subsea in operations that require precision in extreme conditions, the Cougar-XT offers an extremely powerful, yet cost-effective solution to a wide range of subsea solutions.

Designed to accommodate heavier duty tooling through is interchangeable skid, it's ideal to support diver work in delivering inspection, repair and maintenance, drill support, light construction and survey operations. 

Specifications:

  • Depth rating 2,000msw
  • Length 1,515mm
  • Height 790mm
  • Width 1,000mm
  • Launch weight 409kg
  • Forward speed 3.2knots
  • Thrust forward 170kgf
  • Thrust lateral 120kgf
  • Thrust vertical 110kgf
  • Payload 80kg

The Cougar-XT compact has an excellent proven track record in supporting a wide range of markets including the offshore oil and gas and renewables. A shallow water alternative to its more powerful Cougar-XT sister, it’s ideal for observation and light water work offering a vast range of services with flexible capabilities delivering operational cost-effectiveness.

The Cougar-XT compact is ideally suited to shallow water cable laying operations, which is reflected in the needs of the offshore renewable energy market. With a reactive performance capability, it enables precision even in strong tidal conditions.

The Tiger ROV is one of the most recognised ROVs across the subsea industry for completing in-depth and accurate inspections and observation operations.

Operating at depths of up to 1,000m, the Tiger benefits from a significant payload and the ability to offer a stable platform of operation in fast currents and extreme conditions.

Specifications: 

  • TMS type 2 or type 8, or free-swimming operation
  • Up to three video cameras (two live)
  • Sonar systems, altimeter
  • Scientific measurement systems (bathy, CTD, etcetera)
  • CP probe (contact or proximity)
  • Tracking systems
  • Ultrasonic thickness gauge
  • Tooling skids: 4-function manipulator, cutting tool, cleaning brush

The Falcon DR ROV has the same features as the standard Falcon, but with a greater depth rating meaning it can access areas of deeper water offering more operational flexibility.

Specification:

  • 300m (1,000ft) depth rating, 14 kg (30.8lbs) payload
  • Max 450m umbilical length upgradeable to 1100m length with F2 Fibre Optic Pack upgrade
  • Magnetically coupled brushless DC thrusters with velocity feedback - 4 vectored and 1 vertical
  • 50kgf (110lbs) of thrust with almost 1:1 power to weight ratio, without additional payload
  • Distributed intelligence control system
  • High resolution colour camera on 180º tilt platform
  • Variable intensity, 6400 Lumens of LED lighting
  • Auto heading and depth
  • Single phase 100-270 VAC universal auto sensing power input at 2.8 kW
  • 1000m depth rating, 15kg (33lbs) payload
  • Max cable length 1100m of 14 mm umbilical
  • Tilting variable intensity LED lights linked to camera tilt mechanism
  • F2 fibre optic data and video transmission system

The Falcon ROV is one of JF Subsea’s most flexible ROVs designed to complete intricate subsea operations, by balancing versatility and its light weight frame, to go into areas of difficult access - inshore, offshore, down tunnels or for flyaway operations.

Made from a robust material that is durable and buoyant, its light weight frame makes it easy to mobilise for operations not just in the UK, but also globally.

Available with a range of options, tools and accessories, the Falcon can support different customer requirements and be adapted to deliver a bespoke asset management solution.

Specification:

  • 300m (1,000ft) depth rating, 14kg (30.8lbs) payload
  • Max 450m umbilical length upgradeable to 1100m length with F2 Fibre Optic Pack upgrade
  • Magnetically coupled brushless DC thrusters with velocity feedback - 4 vectored and 1 vertical
  • 50kgf (110 lbs) of thrust with almost 1:1 power to weight ratio, without additional payload
  • Distributed intelligence control system
