Overview

With advances in deepwater technology the need for remote intervention as part of field installation has seen a major increase in the number of deepwater remotely operated and autonomous underwater vehicles.

As the complexity of these vehicles evolves the demand for lower density, high performance composites buoyancy systems has increased. This is an area where Balmoral has made significant technological advances.

The use of conventional cast composite buoyancy packs still has many commercial benefits for large vehicles used for trenching of pipelines or submarine cables. However, for deep dive work class ROVs, operating beyond 2000msw, the performance benefits of Balmoral’s LDF series becomes significant.

This low density, pure foam composite provides the operator an opportunity to increase the uplift (buoyancy) of the vehicle thereby resulting in increased payload capacity. It also provides an opportunity to reduce the size of the buoyancy modules thereby reducing the overall weight and dimensions of the vehicle.

Balmoral LDF buoyancy is available from stock for operations at depths to 7000msw.

Balmoral also supplies ROV support equipment for use on the umbilical systems including floats and FlexLink®, a buoyant umbilical bend control system.
