-Centaur truly provides a cost-effective alternative to traditional cable maintenance systems, by delivering all the advantages of a purpose built trencher without any purpose built support requirements. There are no special vessel requirements. Sonsub’s new Centaur Wet-Mateable Trenching System, capable of trenching cables up to 200mm in diameter in 2000 meters of water, delivers all the performance of a track based trencher and a free-swimming ROV, in just one dive. Sonsub’s entire fleet of Innovator ROV’s mate underwater with Centaur’s trenching skid. Shared power and control systems enable a successful evolution into a machine that is both a trencher and an ROV. A track-based work platform enables unique power sharing between the trenching skid and the Innovator ROV, enhancing trenching
performance and optimising efficiency at 20m or 2000m.



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.
