A rescue team in the capital of South Korea is now in possession of a new VideoRay Pro 4. The 119 Special Rescue Team of Seoul Fire and Disaster received the submersible on July 29 from Triton Hi-Tech, a VideoRay dealer in South Korea.
The team conducted tests of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) from three different companies before choosing VideoRay’s sub. The selection process included testing the Pro 4 in a reservoir and a swimming pool.
The 119 Special Rescue Team responds to water-related accidents throughout Seoul as well as along the Han River, which is one of the longest rivers in South Korea.
Triton Hi-Tech has now delivered three Pro 4 ROVs in the past two months. The other two submersibles are in use by Samsung Heavy Industries’ Geoje Shipyard and the Busan 119 Nakdong River Water Rescue Team.
