-The Pioneer HD ROV systems have been designed and built by Subsea 7 to satisfy the perpetual demand for more powerful and capable workclass vehicles. The influence for the development of the Pioneer HD was Subsea 7’s worldrenowned Pioneer system, which was first introduced into the ROV market during the 1980’s.

-With its 120hp hydraulics system, 2,300kg @ 4g (equivalent to 3,067kg @ 3g) through frame lift capacity and vector mounted thrusters, the Pioneer HD proves to be a powerful and manoeuvrable, highly reliable and adaptable tool to both clients and operators alike. The design of the vehicle includes a number of features that have been developed to optimise the reliability and capability of the system, which
include; rationalised cabling, ergonomic design for easier maintenance and peripheral equipment fit and a dedicated high flow four-function tooling valve pack.

-The Pioneer HD has been created to perform a large number of underwater tasks within the subsea construction, pipeline & structural survey, wellhead & manifold intervention and drill rig support areas. As an option the Pioneer HD can be provided with fibre optic video capability, reducing the amount of video degradation that may be experienced when the ROV operates at deeper depths.



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.
