ECA Group solutions to be presented on EUROMARITIME 2022 - Stand G30
At the occasion of Euromaritime 2022, ECA Group will be presenting its cutting-edge solutions dedicated to Maritime activities:
Subsea and offshore robotics
Developing effective unmanned and remotely operated systems of robots is at the heart of ECA Group's R&D efforts. For more than 60 years, ECA Group has been aiming at providing optimized robotic systems to successfully perform missions for Oil & Gas, Subsea purposes such as seabed surveys, asset / critical infrastructure inspection and cleaning.
ECA Group as an expert of underwater robotics, offers a comprehensive operational system integrating a wide range of drones systems including:
- Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) and LARS (Launch and Recovery Systems) to automatically deploy a wide range of drones
- Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)
- Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and associated tooling or Electric manipulator arms
These ranges of solutions are particularly suited for both shallow and deep water pipeline inspection up to 3 000m water depth and for the control of offshore laying operations of cable, risers, pipeline and flexible in the Oil & Gas Industry. Compliant with the standards in place in the industry, these solutions offer a great opportunity to reduce expenditures costs while enhancing data quality and post-processing data management tools.
These robust and highly versatile systems are also employed for Offshore Protection and in particular for :
- Platform and Hull inspections
- Deep and shallow water survey
- Wreck inspection
All ECA Group systems are supported by the appropriate Simulation applications.
These robotic solutions are supported by high-performance unmanned-based tools dedicated to seafloor mapping using bathymetric, side scan and subbottom systems to make the most of the data collected throughout the missions.
ECA Group AUV solutions
ECA Group supplies a wide range of AUV systems, from man portable to mid-size AUV, these cutting-edge unmanned vehicles are run through a user-friendly mission preparation and post-analysis software. Missions can be prepared before the mission, to be quickly deployed on field. The AUV performs its mission up to 6000 m depths in complete autonomy allowing operators to focus on other important tasks and prepare post-mission treatment.
ECA Group ROV solutions and tooling
ECA Group has a long expertise in the design and manufacture of ROV solutions. From compact observation ROV to crawlers to heavy-duty work-class, ECA Group offers a wide range of solutions to help you perform missions underwater, up to 2000 m deep. Its unique architecture makes it easily configured, modular and quickly equipable with a wide range of payloads, tools and sensors (such as high-quality viewing system, sonars or Electric Manipulator Arms). User-friendly, a single and ergonomic control unit allows the control of both ROV and additional equipment.
Coastal and harbor surveillance/protection
ECA Group is also actively engaged in the inspection of harbors and coastal areas by designing and developing efficient unmanned robotic solutions at sea to survey critical infrastructures and or secure major events. ECA Group robots can be easily and quickly deployed. Whether individually or teaming, ECA Group drones can be controlled through a single software interface capable of running simultaneously AUVs, USVs and, UAVs that can be further complemented by ROVs for a combination of tasks.
These systems are particularly efficient to:
- Inspect immersed structures
- Recover or identify objects
- Neutralize underwater threats making it an optimum solution to secure coastal areas.
ECA Group robotic solutions at sea have recently been certified for the security of major sporting events by the French Strategic Planning Committee (CSF).
Discover a unique drone management system
ECA Group's various autonomous air and naval robots can be supervised through a single command and control center. It can be seamlessly connected to other surveillance systems, or integrated into a global security system. Drones can be equipped with electro-optical sensors capable of detecting suspicious individuals or vehicles. Adaptable to the circumstances, the drones can carry out missions such as detection, threat characterization or even neutralization if the risk is confirmed.
Designed to work as a team of robots, it can complement traditional means by increasing their area of coverage, density and persistence. The ability of ECA Group’ solution to control all drones from a single platform allows optimizing the number of operators required.
Discover R7 ROV - a perfect balance of power and portability
The ECA GROUP's R7 is a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) which combines the compactness and ease of deployment of mini-ROVs with the performance, speed and payload carrying capacity of professional observation-class ROVs.
Fast, modular and easy to deploy, the R7 is designed for oceanographers, hydrographers, fish farmers and operators of submerged structures for all their underwater missions up to a depth of 300m, including inspection, observation, surveillance, maintenance and object recovery.
ECA Group provides proven and reliable ship equipment solutions for Energy, Propulsion, Platform Management, Hydrographic Systems and Protection equipment to its customers worldwide.
ECA Group produces electric propulsion systems for a wide range of ships including Mine Countermeasure vessels and Submarines. Manufactured to very high standards and designed to the customer’s requirement they offer uncompromising performance. This includes achieving low noise and vibration levels, integrating state-of-the-art technology to maximise safety and efficiency. Their main features are reliability, efficiency, compactness, ease of operation and maintenance. Of significant advantage is the use of standard components.
Mauric, a naval architecture bureau specializing in the design of different types of naval vessels for defence, security, Oil & Gas, fishing, passenger transportation.
At the occasion of Euromaritime, Mauric will present its Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Design capabilities. The smart ships integration of ECA Group naval drones will be introduced.
