Triggerfish combines proven technologies from the range of DOE manufactured ROV’s and is fabricated using modern marine grade aluminum and plastic materials. The chassis is totally modular and
thus any part is easily & quickly replaced as required. Being made from polypropylene, the chassis is resilient, non-corroding and totally maintenance free. Ancillary equipment is easier to fit and integrate.

The system is hard wired for simplicity and ease of electrical fault diagnosis. This provides an extremely reliable combination for the operator.

Thruster configuration is two horizontal and two vertran units. These are torque-balanced and provide intuitive control and maneuverability in confined areas. DOE fail-safe oil-filled barrier shaft seals have a proven life of 500+ hours.

The clean & simple design allows for easy maintenance of the system in the harshest environments by technicians with a minimum of training, using well proven components.

Designed for use as a cost effective small, powerful and portable ROV system of the highest quality.



We try to provide the most up to date, recent specifications on these ROV systems. However, ROV system specifications are changing all the time, so please double check with the manufacturer to insure the specifications are correct before making a decision in using or purchasing these systems.
