An ECA Group subsea electric manipulator arm for underwater research activities

Wednesday, October 14 2015
ECA Group has been awarded a contract to supply Parks Canada with a 5E MICRO manipulator arm for underwater archaeological research.

ECA Group will provide an underwater electric manipulator arm ARM 5E MICRO  to be operated from an inspection-class ROV for underwater light work operations and object recovery.

Parks Canada  will use the equipment in their underwater research activities across the country. In September 2014, the wreck of HMS Erebus from the ill-fated 1845 Sir John Franklin Expedition was located by Parks Canada underwater archaeologists in arctic waters. Parks Canada and its partners continue to search for Franklin's other vessel HMS Terror, believed to have sunk in deep water off King William Island, Nunavut.

Fully electric, and a perfect alternative to existing hydraulic units, ECA Group has a substantial fleet of electric manipulator arms in operation throughout the world. This is due, beyond the quality of these arms, to the fact that this high technology equipment works perfectly with ECA Group ROVs, but also with ROVs manufactured by other companies, as well as with ROVs directly integrated by operators.
