Q U E S T   C H A R A C T E R I S T I C S

-The 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 operations.

Capable and Rugged

-The QUEST 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.
-The frame 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 resistant.

Exceptional Control

-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™.
-The SeaNet 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.

Parts Commonality

-Component 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.



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.
