Gr8Dane specializes in underwater inspections using ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) technology to provide High Definition Video of underwater infrastructure, vessel hull/machinery condition, and numerous underwater assessment applications.
Gr8Dane Underwater Inspection services provide proactive inspection assessment services for a variety of scenarios, allowing you to identify issues before they develop into a serious situation:
A rugged INSPECTION CLASS UNDERWATER ROV capable of operating to a maximum depth of 1000 feet with an impressive top speed of 6 knots.
The OCEANUS PRO is ideally suited for performing propeller, hull, and wharf inspections as well as underwater search and recovery missions, without batting an eye in the often harsh Atlantic Ocean, or within calmer coastal waterways.
Bridges, wharves, marinas, rock breaks, and other surface and sub-sea structures undergo stress due to aging and natural phenomenon. Close inspection and discovery of flaws in marine infrastructure are critical to safety and continuity. With 1080p & 4K High Definition Digital Video recording capability, we capture a very detailed view that our clients use for further study.
Hull, rudder, propeller, sea bay, transducer, and cooling pipe inspections are critical to ensuring all underwater machinery is working properly or not damaged. Standard 1080p & 4K High Definition Digital Video recordings are provided to the vessels' owner/operator allowing them to make fast decisions for repair options. This minimizes downtime in the highly competitive, time-sensitive fishery season.
The aquaculture industry is heavily regulated and must comply with government standards for Livestock Inspection. High impact video captures both feeding and livestock health in exacting detail to identify concerns as early as possible.
Net Inspections - predators and poaching can create catastrophic situations resulting in loss of livestock. We recommend a regular ROV inspection observation strategy as part of a standard maintenance plan.
The ability to deploy quickly while maintaining maximum effectiveness is crucial for front-line personnel. We build upon this requirement by being able to deploy in almost any condition. With a top speed of 6 knots, the OCEANUS PRO navigates challenging conditions quickly. And with the use of additional options such as a manipulator arm or sonar, a situation can be brought to conclusion with full documentation. Applicability pertains to Drowning Victim Search & Recovery, Evidence Location & Recovery, Diver Support, and Port Security.
We work with individuals, businesses, and members of the insurance industry when claims investigations require proof of condition, asset valuation, or pre-purchase surveys. The high-res capacity of the OCEANUS PRO ROV provides peace of mind with exact proof of condition.
