Super Scorpio

Work Class ROV

Tamboritha Super Scorpio

Tamboritha’s Super Scorpio Work Class ROV is a proven and reliable underwater workhorse, well-suited for Construction, Drill Support, IRM (Inspection Maintenance and Repair) and complex Intervention Operations. The vehicle is depth rated to 1000m, provisioned with 7-function and 5-function manipulators, and includes a high bandwidth fibre multiplexer configured to support 8 cameras (including HD) and RS232/485 data channels. The main drive is 125hp and includes an independent high flow work pump to service demanding tooling and third party equipment.

The ROV spread is launched via an A-frame LARS with a snubber and heave compensation to allow for safe “hands-free” launch and recovery in the most demanding seas, and the umbilical winch has emergency demand spooling to assist in the event of a vessel run-off.
As part of our focus on protecting the environment, Tamboritha’s Super Scorpio ROV spread is fitted with structural bunding and biodegradable hydraulic and dielectric fluids are used.

The system comes complete with a spacious control van, complete with a permanently installed full inspection-standard video suite; a workshop with comprehensive tooling and spares suitable for operating in remote locations. A 250 KVA generator is also available where required.

To further enhance the capabilities of the Super Scorpio, Tamboritha hold a stock of tooling for intervention, cleaning and inspection and also design and build bespoke tooling to suit customer requirement.
