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.

 

ROBUST & RELIABLE 

MEET THE GORILLA ROV

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.

OMRON MX2

In order to control the
thrusters, the Gorilla ROV utilises the MX2 frequency inventer to ensure reliable and powerful manoeuvering.

OMRON EtherCAT

The interface between
the electric components
is based on the EtherCAT
communication system.

OMRON PLC

The brain of the system
is OMRON PLC, the ideal computer for an ROV due to its reliability and easy programming.
