Established in 2015, Rovco is changing the way underwater work is performed and pushing the boundaries of subsea technology. Rovco has developed its SubSLAM technology to improve the data collection of underwater vehicles undertaking the difficult task of subsea infrastructure inspection, aiming ultimately to make the piloting of such vehicles fully autonomous. More efficient survey processes for offshore infrastructure inspections offer huge potential for reducing the size of crews and time needed on vessels out at sea. The innovation represents a more cost-effective, environmentally friendly, time- efficient and safer future for the industry.
