ECA Group delivers a highly equipped H800 Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to the Geneva navigation police to support their underwater Search And Rescue operations.

The navigation police of Geneva is a Swiss government body in charge of the safety on and around Lake Geneva. In order to enhance their underwater survey activities such as Search & Rescue, inspection of wrecks and recovery of objects, the Geneva Navigation Police was looking for a compact and powerful ROV capable of operating underwater in an environment with poor visibility.

Following a successful demonstration at Lake Geneva, ECA GROUP was selected to deliver its H800 ROV, specifically tailored to the client’s requirements.

 

A high performance ROV equipped as per our customer's requirements

To specifically conduct Search & Rescue operations, the H800 ROV system has been equipped with:

  • A powerful scanning sonar to map the lake bed;
  • A 5E Micro, an eco-friendly five axe electric manipulator arm offering intervention capabilities for complex tasks requiring high accuracy;
  • An USBL positioning system for accurate underwater positioning;
  • An altimeter with auto-altitude function enabling navigation close to the lake bed.
