ROVs for Charter

Click here for information on how to contact us




ROVs are an excellent tool for underwater inspection, designed for accessing awkward and inaccessible areas to clearly reveal damage or defects. Our small eyeball/inspection ROVs have vertical and horizontal thrusters, are neutrally buoyant, and have excellent manoeuvrability. These small ROVs are tethered, and can operate at a depth of 100 metres (or deeper), providing excellent colour video that can be recorded and kept for future reference.

Our small eyeballs ROVs are suitable for all underwater inspections in fresh water or seawater. They offer numerous applications, for example:  damage inspection for insurance companies, environmental, insurance, pre-disturbance archaeological surveys and assessments, wreck survey, search, salvage and recovery, water tank inspections, pipeline inspection, reservoir inspection, harbour survey, ship hull inspection clearance and recovery, dock gate inspections, piling inspection, offshore structures survey, bridge inspection and many aspects of police search, location, underwater security and recoveries, diver support and underwater film production. Communication between the ROV (underwater) and the surface operator is through the umbilical that provides a real time flow of information including video footage.

These small ROVs offer the most effective, safest and economical way to carry out subsea inspection work. Available for rapid mobilization and deployment. with minimal operating space being needed. Mobilisation can be by road or sea. Operational from shore/jetty, from a vehicle, or small support vessel/work boat.

An ROV is effectively an underwater robot that can be used for inspections, recoveries, cable burial, search and rescue and much more. More business sectors are realising their benefits, and ROVs are now used in oceanography, fishing, civil engineering and security. An ROV offers a quick and safe inspection solution, which removes the risks of other inspection methods and can save time and money. Ideal for Harbour Authorities, inshore and offshore applications

We have a wide selection of ROVs available on rental or contract options.


TITAN COMMANDO ROV for Hire and Charter.



This ROV is a mobile underwater camera system, controlled from the surface and capable of staying submerged indefinitely.  The ROV is suited to a variety of subsea applications including pipeline inspections, river and ocean searches, dam and tunnel surveys, oil and gas platform work, fish farming, homeland security operations, and underwater recreation.  The ROV will dramatically reduce underwater search time, as well as the risk and high cost often associated with diving operations.  With suitable sensors fitted, the ROV is capable of locating weapons, unexploded ordnance, pipelines, buried treasure, and other metal objects that may be underwater.

The Titan Commando ROV is an inspection ROV made from an aluminium body with a stainless steel protection frame. 600ft Kevlar umbilical cable. Control box. Three thrusters. Tungsten Halogen lights. Super wide-angle camera. Camera tilt function up/down. Camera lock. Sonar system (option). The unit is packed in three carry cases, (ROV, umbilical, and equipment).
