Quasar is a medium size vehicle in the work class ROV range. Utilizing the latest multi- platform Curvetech™components, the vehicle offers class-leading in-current performance, tooling and instrument space and access for maintenance. It is stable even in strong currents, and so excels as a survey and oceanographic platform. It is also equally capable of salvage and construction operations using its isolated hydraulic system which can run high power tools.
It is fitted with a hydraulic power unit to give a total shaft power of up to 100HP. A modular design allows various modes of operation and tasks to be performed using a single system. The power, control and workshop facilities are containerized which allows rapid mobilization on an alternative vessel.
Telemetry data and video are transmitted from the ROV to the surface control through single-mode optical fibers. PC based control system offer state of the art pilot displays and real time diagnostic features.
The vehicle is equipped either with aramid reinforced or with an armored umbilical depending on the project needs. It is deployed using a dedicated A-Frame. In deep water applications a compact top-hat tether management system (TMS) configuration is used.
