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
