ROV Systems Comparison

Please scroll down the page for details on our ROVs, TMS', and simulator products. 

The UHD-III is the highest specification ROV system available, complete with ability to meet API 53 standards for secondary BOP intervention. Its substantial 250Hp and 150Hp auxiliary power performs all subsea tasks, including the most demanding field construction operations. The HD ROV targets a broader range of capabilities and provides a multilevel platform for use in the drill support and IMR segments, while offering heavy-duty capabilities in the construction sector.

Our ROV systems not only deliver the most power and efficiency in their class, they also directly benefit the operator through high fidelity, automated control modes such as Intelligent Power Management, StationKeep™, AutoDisplacement™, and AutoTrack™, which provide the utmost precision and stability for performing intervention tasks. ROV pilots can demonstrate advanced skills and focus on performing complex operations, while the ROV automatically compensates for the challenges of the environment, such as high currents and low visibility.

Our modular approach to system design encompasses mechanical, electrical, electronic, and hydraulic sub-systems. While designed to be robust, ROV system maintenance is greatly simplified by providing comprehensive system diagnostics and intuitive maintenance solutions. Sub-systems are designed to be quickly maintained without any requirement for advanced technical skills or specific system knowledge.

UHD-III ROV Details

The UHD-III meets API 53 standards for BOP intervention with RAM closure in less than 45-seconds. Schilling Robotics has delivered nearly 100 UHD-brand ROVs since 2007. The UHD ROV line is renowned for handling of the most demanding subsea work.

Our new UHD-III will be the most powerful and most capable of arduous tasks that require significant power to lift, position, and install subsea field equipment. All aspects of field construction can be undertaken with ease, and the advanced automatic piloting modes provide the most precise and stable platform for performing intervention and survey operations. ROV operators and E&P companies consistently praise the superior work capabilities and effectiveness of Schilling Robotics' ROVs.

The UHD-III meets API 53 standards for BOP intervention with RAM closure in less than 45-seconds, via its ISOL-8 pump.

  • Hydraulic power to 250-hp; Auxiliary power to 150-hp
  • Optimizes work performance with automatic power efficiency management
  • More space for tools and instruments than comparable ROVs
  • Increases ROV pilot efficiency through intuitive ROV control interface, automated navigation, and positioning systems
  • Customer configurable, modular control system simplifies tooling integration
  • Dedicated propulsion and tooling hydraulic circuits that optimize ROV and tooling performance
  • 60-minute or less rapid maintenance design

HD ROV Details

Schilling Robotics' HD ROV is a 150hp, compact remotely operated vehicle is designed for accommodating the specific needs of the IMR and drill support markets. The HD™ system is optimized for installation onboard drilling rigs and ROV support vessels, where available deck space is limited.

It features our unique power management system and advanced automatic piloting modes that deliver superior operational stability and precise control. Based on integrated sub-systems, the HD reduces complexity, increases efficiency, and lowers the cost of owning and operating an ROV.

It includes dedicated interfaces for integrating intervention or survey tooling. Ergonomic design provides users with spacious access to the system for maintenance and onboard capacity for installing additional intervention tools and work packages within the vehicle’s footprint. Combined with Schilling’s electric TMS system, the standard model is capable of excursions up to 425-meters. This compact system is configured for ease of road transportation and rapid mobilization, while providing the flexibility to perform a wide variety of deepwater operations.

Tether Management Systems (TMS) Comparison

The Electric TMS has been designed around a field-proven 'shuttling drum' concept that provides exceptionally simple tether routing. The complete tether drum moves on a carriage system allowing the tether to exit the drum directly above and through the payout sheave.

Power supply to the TMS requires only a single branch circuit from the surface. This contributes to a smaller umbilical cross section and a more compact surface power distribution unit, without sacrificing performance. ‚Äč
