-Seaeye Panther ROV Systems are depth rated to 1500 metres and were the first of a new generation of electric powered work ROVs. A Panther is able to carry out many of the tasks previously carried our by conventional hydraulic powered work vehicles that are larger, heavier and invariably more costly.

-Powered by four vectored and two vertical SM5 brushless DC thrusters, the Panther is the ideal vehicle for Survey operations, for which it is fully interfaced, or for drill support in the offshore oil and gas industry. For operations in stronger currents where greater thrust is required, Seaeye offer the Panther Plus with an additional 4 vectored SM5 thrusters.

-The remarkably low weight of this powerful ROV has been achieved by the extensive use of plastics and composite materials including two carbon fibre electronics pods and a Seaeye obsession for maximising the power to weight ratio of their vehicles.

-A basic ROV system comprises the Vehicle, a Surface Control Unit, a Hand Controller and a Power Supply Unit. The surface unit and PSU can be supplied free standing or containerised. The Control Container can be Zone II rated or rated for safe area operations and can be air conditioned.

-Although free swimming operations are possible with up to 300 metres of tether this ROV is normally deployed using a Seaeye Panther Tether Management System (TMS) to minimise the effect of current on the vehicle's performance. The TMS is a garage with a bale arm and 150 metre capacity of tether.


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.
