CSA International Acquires ROV System to Support its Scientific Fleet (USA)
CSA International, Inc. has acquired a state-of-the-art inspection class remotely operated vehicle (ROV) system to support its offshore environmental and scientific fleet.
The ROV has been configured to carry a high-definition (HD) video system, complete with LED lighting, sighting lasers for image sizing and measurements, and a computer-based HD video recording capability. The ROV is now on its first project in the Gulf of Mexico. Due to its compact size, the ROV system is easily shipped to both domestic and foreign locations in a cost-effective manner and is able to work from a variety of vessels.
“The recent refinement of HD video imaging and recording technology makes this ROV a powerful tool in support of our environmental and scientific surveys,” stated Kevin Peterson, CEO of CSA. “We’ve utilized ROV systems for many years in our segment of the industry, but only recently have we been able to pull together all of the components for HD imaging and archiving in a cost-effective and portable package.”
