ROV Operations

What We do

CanPac’s Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) equipment and their experienced pilots have a wide range of experience with the following:

• ROV Inspections
• Equipment Deployment
• Scientific Research Projects
• Recovery Projects

We focus on three primary areas: shallow water up to 300 metres; midwater up to 1,000 metres. We have the ability to upgrade 1,400 metres if required.

With worldwide experience with challenging waters and terrains, CanPac’s ROV pilots are highly trained to handle the challenges of difficult working conditions. They are renowned for their operational capabilities, experience, telemetry systems and knowledge of a variety of software-related programs. Their capabilities also include analysis and repair of ROV's, thus reducing and/or avoiding equipment downtime. With small working windows, the experience of the pilot is paramount as they need to rapidly deploy equipment and perform work efficiently.
