As the technology utilized in Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) continues to grow, there are some significant increases in the types of operations now being performed remotely.

ROVs are robots that complete functions underwater on behalf of a crew. The ROV pilot, located on the surface, controls the ROV, which connects to the vessel through an umbilical. This tethered underwater robot can be sent down into waters too deep or too dangerous for divers to reach. It can also be used to inspect the various subsea templates and subsea manifolds.

Underwater Machines

These amazing unoccupied submersibles are highly maneuverable. At the same time, it is essential that ROV pilots receive proper training, as costs of equipment are high, and the operators should be prepared for various types of emergencies and failures.

Some usual tools commonly set up on ROVs include: mechanical manipulators, sonar, magnetometers, various types of cameras, cutting/shearing tools, and other devices to measure the characteristics of its environment.

A pilot that undergoes ROV training in the PaleBlue VR ROV Simulator, can maneuver the ROV with an incredible precision, even at depths well below the normal penetration level.


Flexible toolset
PaleBlue ROV Simulator Types

We provide various ROV simulators to cover different needs and use cases.

in planning
Access Check

Used by CAD designers of subsea equipment. A simulated ROV is added to the scene to check for access and clash issues.

in preparing
ROV Pilot Training

Train ROV pilots in an immersive VR environment, so they learn to manouevre the ROV like in a real operation.

In Action
Live operation

Use VR for controlling a real ROV operation and get better overview of the environment, understand more, and react more efficiently.

In Analysing
ROV Monitoring

Connect a number of VR observers to a VR session or a live operation to gain better insights and understanding of what is going on at a depth.
