ROV SUPER-ACHILLEThe SUPER-ACHILLE is a versatile, powerful, robust and reliable inspection, survey and lightwork ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle).
It can be operated via a "garage cage" and TMS (Tether Management System) together with a launching system with a 1000 m cable, it may also be used as a free swimming unit up to -200 metres.
Once at its working depth, SUPER ACHILLE can leave its cage on a 100 m floating umbilical, controlled by a winch at the top of the cage (TMS).
The umbilical is simply a light coaxial wire throught which the energy, the controls and the information received (sonar, TV, position, etc...) are multiplexed, thus avoiding the use of multiwire umbilicals, which are stiff and expensive.

When fitted with a trasponder, SUPER ACHILLE can also be used as a DP reference for vessel and its position is given in geographical coordinates. The ROV's trip can thus be recorded and its position with respect to the vessel or its garage can be constantly checked.

Typical jobs for SUPER ACHILLE are diver assistance and large ROV assistance but also underwater site surveys (wrecks,coral,shells,pipelines,etc.) in heavy polluted water, or difficult current conditions (up to 2 knots).
With the addition of purpose built tools, SUPER ACHILLE is able to complete surface monitored underwater tasks, such as: wreck salvage, measurements and sample gathering, setting of explosive charge, rope cutting, etc.
