V8 M500 ROV delivered to Marinetek

An Ocean Modules V8 M500 ROV system has been delivered to the Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute (Marinetek) by distributor Ocean SAR.

Marinetek is part of the SINTEF Group and primarily works with research and development related to shipping, oil and gas and ocean energy, developing tomorrow's ocean space technology in close collaboration with industry. The new ROV system is used for test trials and maintenance during raising and lowering of the floor of the institution's large test pool.

The pool is used to test the hydrodynamics and structural engineering of aquaculture constructions, hydrodynamic loads on floating structures and ship hydrodynamics such as propulsion, seaworthiness, loads and manoeuvring.
