Water jetting in confined spaces.

The challenge was to get into a tank structure, through a 30 cm predrilled hole, and clean welds for close visual inspection and non-destructive testing. The solution was to build a small but powerful ROV around a set of high-pressure nozzles. It has proven to be very effective and are currently on assignment for customers in the North Sea. The system is based on Stinger's ARROV architecture with remote control from the surface.
