Following on the heels of another Pro 4 sale, Triton Hi-Tech, a VideoRay dealer in South Korea, has sold a Pro 4 to Samsung Heavy Industries’ Geoje Shipyard in South Korea. The remotely operated vehicle (ROV) will be used for ship inspection and underwater survey.
The shipyard, located in South Gyeongsang Province, has been using a VideoRay Explorer ROV for about 10 years.
Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) is one of the largest shipbuilders in the world and one of the “Big Three” shipbuilders in South Korea. Geoje Shipyard has three dry docks and five floating docks. Among the company’s pursuits is the engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and delivery of transportation ships for the commercial industry; drilling and floating production units for the oil and gas sector; and digital instrumentation and control devices for ships.
Just prior to the Geoje Shipyard delivery, Triton Hi-Tech delivered another Pro 4 system to the Busan 119 Nakdong River Water Rescue Team in Busan, South Korea. The team is responsible for overseeing safety, search and rescue activities along the river.
