PIPEYE is a compact hybrid ROV/AUV with tracks, batteries on board and 3 km FO umbilical, specifically designed for the inspection of large submerged pipes, addressing the shore industrial plants market as a service.
The problem we are solving
PIPEYE can inspect internally long pipes over 1 km in a cost-effective manner avoiding risking human lives and with an easier mobilization and set-up compared to current ROV systems. Means used to carry out inspections in shore industrial plants implies the use of divers in confined spaces therefore putting in risk human lives. In most cases this implies to stop the plant which is not always possible or easy to program and coordinate with the inspection. Mobilization complexity for 1km or more (umbilical), needing big trucks to move it.
