Depro rolls out BLUEROC ROV concept

Depro and VideoRay have developed a new, compact and flexible ROV concept which is easy to use and quick to mobilize.


The ROV concept BLUEROC represents a remotely operated container solution, designed specifically to control and operate an inspection ROV.

According to Depro, several customers have mentioned up to 75 per cent in savings.

The container consists of equipment required to run the operation (operation room, winch, LARS, TMS and the ROV).

BLUEROC is quick to mobilize and install on the vessel.

For example, all operation parts come in one 20 feet container, ready within 1 hour.

BLUEROC operates in water depths down to 2000 meter.

The system is suitable for all type of vessels that have available space for a 20 feet container.

Therefore, this gives the opportunity to use vessel with low day rates, which contributes to lower cost for the operator, Depro explains.

Customers buying the ROV-concept can also have a training program on how to operate the BLUEROC.

In addition, the system comes with standard setup for 4G and Wi-Fi connection.

Kenneth Olsen, the CMO of Depro, said:

“This product is a part of a long term Depro strategy, where we want to offer innovative, remote operational concepts which generates high customer value.

“To strengthen our position, we believe it is important to drive the technology towards more cost efficient and environmentally beneficial concepts and products.

“The concept and our vision has been well received by customers.”

Depro said it has already received order for the first system scheduled for delivery by the end of this year.
