Reservoir Inspection


Client: TasWater, Southern Tasmania region, Tasmania. Client: TasWater, Southern Tasmania region, Tasmania.

Project: Onshore ROV services for TasWater to inspect outlets at the Ridgeway Reservoir. Using an Observation Class ROV Dive Works conducted a series of inspections on the Ridgeway Reservoir. The ROV Pilot and Technician deployed the ROV from the dam wall to a depth of approximately 30 metres.

Dive Works’ ROV system is safer, faster and more economical than using divers.

Benefits of using ROVs instead of divers:

• Reduce Costs – Dive Works only requires two personnel and ROV, instead of a six man dive crew and decompression chamber. (A decompression chamber is required when divers work past a depth of 30 metres)

• Safety – An ROV is deployed in the water instead of divers, significantly reducing occupational health and safety risks

• Quality of Images – The Seaeye ‘Falcon’ Observation Class ROV has a high resolution colour camera which captures high quality images, making is easier to determine asset management and maintenance requirements

• Additional Tooling – A variety of tools can be added onto the ROV, such as; imaging sonar, LinkQuest tracking system, leak detection system, Ultrasonic Thickness Tester (UTT), navigation suite and manipulator
