Use case

Inspection and cleaning of the firefighting water tank on an Airbus industrial site

Blagnac, France - 2015

Using the Guardian mini-ROV design, Subsea Tech developed AspiROV, a cleaning robot able to pump the sediments out of water tanks without any emptying or diver intervention. Thanks to their small dimensions, Subsea Tech's mini-ROV can enter confined areas and provide the operator with high resolution real-time video. Subsea Tech successfully  deployed the AspiROV to carry out in very short time the inspection and cleaning of 2 firefighting water tanks on the Toulouse Airbus site.

Due to the growing coronavirus epidemic, the French government has announced a containment measure for the entire country for a minimum period of 14 days starting March 17, 2020. Therefore, Subsea Tech will partially cease its activity for the duration of the containment. During this period, only commercial and engineering activities (studies in particular) will continue to operate. Production, after-sales service and interventions will be suspended until the containment measures are cancelled.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that caution is required and that it is important to respect the basic hygiene instructions, as well as the specific safety instructions put in place by your government.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you soon!
