ROVs for Hydroelectric

A safe solution for hydrostructure inspection

Modular Design, Unlimited Possibilities

VideoRay Mission Specialist Series vehicles are designed and built with flexibility in mind. The modular design enables easy maintenance and seamless integration with a variety of tools for a custom solution to your underwater challenges.

Common hydroelectric energy production applications:

  • Hydroelectric dam inspections
  • Intake visual inspections
  • Trash rack visual inspections
  • Reservoir visual inspections
  • Hydro turbine inspections

ROV Systems for Hydroelectric Energy Production

VideoRay ROVs have proven themselves as one of the easiest, safest and most cost-effective solutions for hydro structure inspections. The compact and portable system can easily be deployed and piloted by a single operator while capturing high-resolution color video for your documentation needs.

With multiple size and configuration options, VideoRay submersibles can easily access tight spaces or culverts, pull long lengths of small-diameter tether through narrow pipes and observe potential erosion or leak problems before they turn into costly repairs. Send the ROV into dangerous areas where diver safety is an issue and gain an overall perspective of the integrity of aging infrastructure quickly and safely. Engineers and security personnel will gain valuable insight into the structure while noticing immediate return on their VideoRay ROV investment.

Mission Specialist Defender

The Defender ROV configuration is designed for greater control of the vehicle position and supporting heavier payloads. The addition of third-party software makes the Defender a popular configuration for harsh environments and stronger currents.

Mission Specialist Pro 5

The Pro 5 is designed to handle missions with size, space, weight and deployment speed constraints. It builds on the strengths of the Pro 4 but adds more thrust, longer tether lengths, higher-resolution video and the advantage of the Mission Specialist modular systems.
