Comanche ROVForum Energy Technologies has won an order to supply the University of Limerick with a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to support its subsea inspection and intervention work on renewable energy infrastructure.

The University of Limerick’s Mobile and Marine Robotics Research Centre (MMRRC) has purchased the Sub-Atlantic Comanche 2,000 metre Observation Class ROV and associated launch and recovery system for delivery in March 2017. The Comanche was selected due to its high thrust to drag ratio enabling it to operate in strong waves, currents and winds. The system will be equipped with precision positioning and navigation systems, camera and lighting systems and sonars. The vehicle will be housed at Limerick Docks where experimentation, testing and demonstration will be carried out. It will also be mobilised on vessels at other ports in Ireland, for offshore work at wind, tidal and wave energy test sites and farms.
