Tortuga

Manufacturer: SUBSEA TECH

Availability: Usually ships in 8-12 weeks

The Tortuga ROV is a 500m depth rated underwater inspection robot. Each one of the 4 horizontal thrusters develops a 20 kgf thrust and is fitted with an unique azimuthal control system that allows operating the ROV in strong current conditions up to 4 knots, regardless of the direction. Thanks to its unrivalled 1,8 thrust to weight ratio and its fully integrated acoustic imaging solution, Tortuga is the ultimate vehicle for underwater inspections in harsh operational conditions (low visibility, strong currents, long range inspections, etc.).

The Tortuga ROV is a 500m depth rated underwater inspection robot. Each one of the 4 horizontal thrusters develops a 20 kgf thrust and is fitted with an unique azimuthal control system that allows operating the ROV in strong current conditions up to 4 knots, regardless of the direction.

Thanks to its unrivalled 1,8 thrust to weight ratio and its fully integrated acoustic imaging solution, Tortuga is the ultimate vehicle for underwater inspections in harsh operational conditions (low visibility, strong currents, long range inspections, etc.).

It has a small size, thin umbilical cable and very high manoeuvring capability which allows operating in hard-to-reach places including inside sunken wrecks.

ROV OVERVIEW

  • Thrust: Tortuga is powered by 4 horizontal thrusters with azimuthal control developing each a 20kgf thrust. It offers the highest thrust to weight ratio on the inspection class ROV market.
  • The vehicle is operated from the top side control unit via a 10mm umbilical cable using a wireless joystick based on video and data from depth sensor on a TV screen.
  • Communications: Thanks to an innovative communication protocol, the ROV tether has a reduced diameter (10mm) to minimize drag and optimize inspection range.
  • Hydrodynamic Desing: Tortuga’s innovative form factor inspired from AUV design allows enhanced navigation capabilities and increased inspection range.
  • Maximum operation depth is 500 m
  • The ROV has two color camera, front and rear with tilt function
  • Three clusters of ultra-bright LEDs are installed in front of the vehicle.
  • The vehicle can be connected to video display, TV or/and video recorder via standard cable.
  • Maximum power consumption is 2000 Watt.
  • The complete system is packed into two plastic cases. One case contains the underwater vehicle and cable reel, another – control and power supply module and joystick.
  • The size of operating area is limited by cable length (200 m in basic set). It is possible to increase the cable length up to 500 m.
  • The video camera together with lights provides 15-20 m daylight visibility in the transparent water. Maximum 3-4 m visibility can be reached during the night.
