Diablo is a compact alternative to Demon and the preferred choice where deck space or access to subsea structures is restricted. Drill support operations could be an example of this. The principal differences between these two full specification work class ROVs is the smaller size of Diablo and the provision of two vertical thrusters on this vehicle rather that the three fitted to Demon. Otherwise Diablo is built from the same components used for Demon providing the convenience of common spares holding for a mixed fleet of Diablo and Demon ROVs. The maximum depth rating of Diablo is 2000 metres.

Powered by a 100 shaft hp Curvetech Propulsion System, this ROV can be operated 'free swimming' to greater depths than had previously been thought possible. Live boat operations to the full 2000 metre depth rating is routine for this immensely powerful system. Alternatively Diablo can be deployed from a Hydrovision long excursion tether management system, (TMS). These are available in either a 'Top Hat' or 'Garage' configurations.

The electronics, PC control system and diagnostics are a reassuring evolution of familiar technology for your pilots and technicians. This makes training easy and greatly contributes to the excellent reliability and minimal down time experienced by all Diablo owners and operators. Built and supported by engineers who have worked in your business, Diablo is a powerful, rugged system and laid out with maintenance and easy access to components as the highest priority.


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.
