Intervene faster, keep production online more effectively, and reduce your carbon footprint
Oceaneering's Liberty E-ROV is a self-contained, battery-powered, work-class vehicle that allows you to perform routine tasks with fewer deployments. It can carry out inspection, maintenance, and repair (IMR), commissioning, and underwater intervention activities.
It is an all-in-one deployable and recoverable system with a cage-mounted battery pack and tether management system, and communications buoy, which hosts an antenna mast to improve signal reception and battery power to support communications transfer. Liberty's batteries provide 500 kWh power.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint up to 90%
The Liberty E-ROV system is environmentally friendly, enabling a reduction in carbon footprints—up to 90%.
When quantifying the yearly CO2 emissions the Liberty system eliminates when compared to a vessel-based ROV spread, the numbers are significant. An estimate shows that the emissions drop from 51,000 lbs a year to 5,000 when the resident Liberty ROV is used.
The system is a semi-resident and does not require a vessel to be deployed along with it. Vessels can be freed up to either perform other tasks while the Liberty E-ROV performs its own subsea, such as inspection, valve operation, torque tool operation, and manipulator-related activities.
Backed by 24/7 Onshore Support
Oceaneering's Onshore Remote Operations Centers (OROC) can support and operate the Liberty E-ROV from locations located strategically around the world.
OROC is able to accomplish this with communication provided via high bandwidth low latency 4G LTE and satellite communication from the Liberty E-ROV system's buoy. The combination of these technologies makes Liberty E-ROV a very cost-effective subsea tool.
Subsea Resident ROV Eliminates Vessel Requirements and Provides Substantial Cost Savings for Client
LibertyTM E-ROV deployed as stand-by, emergency support during well workover activities
In late 2019, a major operator was completing well workover activities on a template offshore Norway using a semi submersible drilling rig. The operations included pulling a high pressure cap and there was potential for the release of pressure and a subsequent gas leak.
