Last week I took great pleasure in returning Cork City Missing Persons Search and Recovery Units Blue Robotics Blue ROV2. Mariteq Solutions were tasked with carrying out a complete strip down and rebuild of the ROV.
Work took a number of weeks due to Brexit and the requirement for service kits and new lighting which shipped from the UK.
The work carried out was as follows:
- Complete strip down and clean.
- Laptop updates and security patches applied.
- ROV firmware updated to the most stable version available.
- Camera Software updated.
- ROV operating softwares latest version installed and configured.
- ROV umbilical tested and checked for damage.
- All seals and ‘O’ rings replaced.
- Thrusters all stripped and serviced.
- New high intensity LED lighting fitted and configured.
- Offline Maps updated for operations.
Mariteq Solutions have agreed to provide technical support to CCMPSAR free of charge for all their Radio, Sonar, Navigation and ROV systems going forward.
