Across the world there are numerous hydro applications for the LBV. Structures themselves require inspections to ensure proper operating conditions are met as well as any maintenance that might need carried out. Adding to the structures are the mechanics of the various types of power hydro plants. Internal pipeline inspections are just one example.
The various LBV systems offer a diverse range of capability to tackle the hydro demands. Several clients have found usefulness in the long line systems such as the vLBV300-L where they are able to deploy from high above the waterline and/or have the capability to penetrate deep within the hydro structures.
With the added thrust found in the vLBV300-L hydro clients are able to pull the extended length of tether (2,000 meters) and also work in conditions where other small ROVs lack the power.
