QUEST UHD from Schilling Robotics delivers
the performance and maximum hydraulic
power required in an ultraheavy-duty work-class
ROV. The rugged and powerful 150-hp system
is designed to accommodate the growing
market for ultraheavy tasks such as suction
pile installation, flying lead installation,
and other applications that benefit from
redirecting power from propulsion to tooling
UHD is based on Schilling Robotics’
Remote Systems Engine™ (RSE) technology.
Because RSE components are compact and
efficient, the QUEST UHD vehicle is comparably
sized with other work-class hydraulic
ROVs, but it weighs less and provides
more space for tools and instruments inside
the frame. It also allows customers to
select between 100- hp or 150-hp power
pack options without making modifications.
is constructed primarily of aluminum and
titanium. The titanium is used in the
vehicle load path, producing a frame that
is light, strong, and highly corrosion
-In the QUEST
UHD, RSE equipment provides the same precise
system control available in the electric
QUEST model, including true dynamic positioning
using a Doppler velocity log. The thruster
control loop is closed at each thruster
rather than topside, allowing quicker
thruster response and accurate control
for automated functions such as StationKeep™.
communication and te-lemetry system provides
up to 90 serial channels and 24 video
channels through one single-mode optical
fiber path. Output from multiple channels
can be displayed simultaneously in a single,
high-fidelity image on a 72-inch screen.
Dual operator controls include a universal
hand controller and a touchscreen.
commonality in the QUEST UHD (including
motors, communication equipment, actuators,
and accessories) holds provisioning requirements
to a minimum. The hydraulic thruster motor
used on the vehicle is also used to operate
the TMS drum.
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.
