ECA Group to deliver a H300V ROV system for dam inspection in Eastern Europe

Wednesday, November 28 2018
ECA Group has entered an order for a H300V ROV system to be delivered for hydraulic dams inspection in Eastern Europe.

ECA Group was awarded an order from Technopole Company for a H300V ROV system which will be used by one of his clients for inspecting hydraulic dams in Eastern Europe. This order reinforces ECA Group's expertise and sales record for the inspection of hydro-electric dams and water cooled power plants.

Hydraulic dams require inspection, and use of ROVs do prevail nowadays: they indeed permit an on-going survey, thus avoiding the need for emptying the upstream reservoir.

Zones to be monitored and inspected are most frequently the dam wall itself, but also other specific parts like the spillway i.e. the structures (also called overflow channels) used to provide the controlled release of flows from the dam into the downstream area.

The ECA Group H300V ROV, with its 4 vectored horizontal thrusters, is particularly suited for this kind of application.

Specifically, the ROV incorporates a BV5000 imaging sonar system permitting 3D mapping of large areas within turbid waters, and a Kraken Seavision 3D laser imaging system which generates very high resolution 3D scans in full colour ; both sensors will be installed within the ROV’s frame so as to permit easy mounting and removal (plug & play).
