Oceaneering's self-contained, battery-powered (cage-mounted 100-kW battery pack) remotely operated vehicle (E-ROV) system performs common ROV tasks including inspection, valve operation, torque tool operation, and manipulator-related activities. The system interfaces with the company's onshore Mission Support Center via a 4G mobile broadband signal transmitted from a buoy on the water’s surface and eliminates the requirement for a surface vessel onsite. Piloting from onshore is made possible with Oceaneering's proprietary remote piloting and automated control technology. The ROV was named a winner of the 2018 OTC Spotlight on New Technology Awards.
