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.
