Work Class ROV Saab Seayeye LEOPARD

The most powerful and compact work class ROV

The ‘Leopard’ features the latest in technology from the world’s largest ROV manufacturer. The ROV system includes a tether management system (TMS), launch and recover system (LARS) and Schillings Orion 7 and 4 function manipulators. The Leopard’s light foot print (33 tonnes) allows for easy transportation and rapid mobilisation. The ROV also provides greater reliability and less downtime through simple operation and maintenance. With 11 thrusters, unrivalled payload and a host of advanced technology features, the ‘Leopard’ can handle more tooling, cameras and survey equipment than any other ROV in its class.  Dive Works has the ability to mobilise quickly and effciently and the ROV operates to depths of 2000m.

Benefits of the Leopard

  • Small vessel/platform deck loading requirements
  • Latest technology providing agile and precise to control with better access to complex and delicate subsea structures and more reliability than other Work Class ROVs
  • Back-up support via state of the art self diagnostic technology. Remote Access can provide support 24/7 diagnostics – minimising down time
  • Quieter in operation, which makes it significantly better for survey roles – well suited to carry out (IRM) inspection, repairs and maintenance on subsea assets
  • Total weight of equipment is approximately 33 tonnes, compared to 70+ tonnes with older ROVs. Current operators require larger vessels to carry the equipment. Using smaller vessels may help to reduce costs
