RELIABILITY IS THE HIGHEST PRIORITY
The Gorilla ROV from Copenhagen Subsea A/S is based on our reliable rim-driven thruster technology which, combined with industrial electronics from the leading Japanese company OMRON, gives an unprecedented level of reliability.
The use of 8 powerful thrusters gives the Gorilla ROV the ability to keep its position in strong currents.
Its exceptional robustness enables operation in harsh and demanding environments.
The Gorilla is tough and strong, works reliably in challenging conditions, is simple to maintain with
easy access spare parts and is easily controlled thanks to Copenhagen Subsea’s thruster technology.
EASY TO OPERATE
The Gorilla is equipped as standard with an intelligent Dynamic Positioning (DP) system, enabling
automatic control of position, depth, altitude, heading, pitch and roll.
The electrical system of the Gorilla ROV is based on OMRON components. Thousands of these are deployed worldwide and they are built to handle extreme conditions such as high current inrush from the thruster during deacceleration and current overload at fast shifting of the thruster direction.
Both of these are critical for the ROV to be able to
keep its position in strong current.
This unique combination, of exceptional reliability and robustness with maneuverability and power, makes the Gorilla ideally suited for completing any task in tough offshore conditions.

INDUSTRIAL HARDWARE INSIDE
The electrical system of the Gorilla ROV is based on industrial hardware from OMRON. The use of an open
platform with reliable OMRON components means the user can easily maintain the electrical system themselves, purchasing spare parts locally when necessary with the minimal waiting time.
In order to control the
thrusters, the Gorilla ROV utilises the MX2 frequency inventer to ensure reliable and powerful manoeuvering.
The interface between
the electric components
is based on the EtherCAT
The brain of the system
is OMRON PLC, the ideal computer for an ROV due to its reliability and easy programming.
Open system architecture fully maintainable by customer
Lock and latch system for high altitude launch and recovery
Remote access via VPN connection for support and monitoring
All vehicle data are saved for debugging
Online display of motor isolation value
Fiber optic data transfer in umbilical for fast and noise immune transfer of data
UPS - Uninterrupted Power Supply for safe power down of electronic
