The use of an ARES ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) provides alternatives that are not limited by standard material removal methodology.
In-Service Material Removal is a limitless area where robotics can perform the previously unimaginable.
Cost benefits of a vessel remaining in service vs. the time and cost of removing it from service
The ability to perform maintenance material reduction and volume restoration on a prescheduled basis
Material Removal and Disposal opportunities never before possible without shutdown
Internal Floating Roof Maintenance and Inspection without human entry of the confined space.
Camera inspections of individual roof components and sealing systems
Removal of pontoon lids and pumping of any liquid materials from pontoons to verify structural integrity
Ability to remove fugitive material accumulated on internal roof due to seal burp or failure
All functions can be easily accomplished regardless of tank condition and/or internal roof integrity
Bulk Material Removal regardless of vessel conditions, integrity or internal roof height
A single ROV is designed to replace and significantly outperform an entire tank cleaning crew
ROVs are unaffected by Tank Conditions/Integrity, LEL Levels or IHDL Conditions
Systems are fully adaptable to perform material removal under changing conditions
*All functions can be easily accomplished regardless of material viscosity, density or abrasiveness in addition to Carbon Steel or Stainless Steel vessels..
Stainless Steel Tank ROV Application
ROV’s can perform top vessel entry into any shaped vessel therefore there is no need for cutting on vessel for entry which maintains vessel integrity while being cost effective
ROV equipment is stainless steel and compatible and will not contaminate vessel with incompatible materials
ROV’s can perform maintenance cleaning and bulk material removal while the vessel is in service
Can clean entire vessel with no human entry and readied for inspection or repairs
