Ashtead Technology is now the exclusive global rental agent for SeaBotix’s miniROV system
UK-based Ashtead Technology is now the exclusive global rental agent for SeaBotix’s miniROV system and has invested in vLBV300 and LBV150-4 ROV systems for both rental and demonstration purposes.
This comes after a recently signed agreement which saw Ashtead sell and rent SeaBotix’s miniROV systems at OTC in Houston, USA earlier this month. It also included sales representation in the UK, Gulf of Mexico and Mexico, allowing Ashtead to deliver after-sales support and product training from its facilities in Aberdeen, UK and Houston.
SeaBotix’s LBV150-4 inshore miniROV which is 150m depth rated, comes complete with a 150m tether on a hand reel and an integrated control consol.
The vLBV300 is the latest in highly capable vectored ROVs. Weighing just 40lbs, it features powerful, variable, vector thruster configuration, optimised mechanical design, a flexible and stable platform, a strong ultra-low drag tether and an intuitive control system. Ashtead says these features make the ROV ideal for offshore inspection work, near-shore survey and environmental monitoring.
