The Octopoda Multipurpose ROV skid is designed to reduce cost in subsea operations related to installation, maintenance and other activities related to underwater operations.
The Multipurpose skid is equipped with a powerpack HPU, 210-liter reservoir and two valve packs with a total of 16 operating proportional valves with pressure reducing function. Operating pressure between 0 and 207 Bar. HP Pressure Boosters is integrated on two functions to perform pressure barrier testing and recording.
The skid has a communication gateway enabling control and test of subsea equipment. Electrical and communication are provided by the ROV system. Electrical power is transformed in a built-in subsea transformer to operate the different valves and communication. The Subsea Gateway is a self-contained unit with multiple communication ports for interfacing with valve packs and other electrically operated components, instrumentation and/or subsea cameras.
The skid is controlled from topside using iCsys GIU software and hardware.
