ROV Systems

Our ROV fleet includes work class and inspection systems fit for applications from routine to extreme. As the industry evolves, so do we—our ROVs comply with API intervention standards and are rated for deep waters.

Heavy Work Class ROVs

From deep water depths to extreme lifting requirements, our heavy work class ROVs increase efficiency and decrease downtime.

NEXXUS ROV, BOP intervention, deepwater ROV, Oceaneering


Our high-power, heavy work class ROV system meets the API Standard 53 requirements for BOP intervention. With heavily increased tooling capabilities, the NEXXUS ROV is designed to meet next-generation intervention requirements.

Maxximum ROV, heavy work class ROV, deepwater ROV

Maxximum® ROV

The cage-deployed Maxximum ROV is a dual-manipulator, 270-hp work class ROV system. An enhanced thruster configuration provides center lift capacity of nearly 3,000 lb, and forward pivoted bollard lift capacity in excess of 1,800 lb.

Millennium Plus ROV, high lift capacity, deepwater ROV

Millennium® Plus ROV

This powerful ROV features a dual-manipulator, 220-hp work class system with an enhanced thruster configuration that increases lift capacity by more than 50% compared with the standard Millennium ROV system.

Magnum Plus ROV, deepwater intervention, ROV tooling

Magnum® Plus ROV

The powerful Magnum Plus ROV delivers enhanced flight control in a smaller package. Reliable and easily maintained, it provides a 170-hp, high-thrust, tophat- or cage-deployed system designed for subsea intervention and deepwater tooling.

Work Class ROVs

The latest electric propulsion technology reduces the environmental impact of our work class ROVs.

eNovus ROV, electric propulsion, Oceaneering ROV

eNovus ROV

The compact work class eNovus ROV is the newest addition to our fleet and is powered by an environmentally conscious, 150-kVA electric (235-hp hydraulic equivalent) propulsion system. This vehicle maintains work class manipulator capabilities via a dedicated hydraulic circuit.

Observation and Inspection ROVs

Our deepwater-rated ROVs enable reliable completion of subsea survey operations.

Omni Maxx ROV, observation class, deepwater inspection

Omni Maxx ROV

The Omni Maxx ROV is a true deepwater observation and inspection system that operates independently and provides high-definition images of subsea environments. The system consists of the ROV and a tether-management module with up to 820 ft (250 m) of tether cable.

Sea Maxx ROV, satellite ROV, deepwater inspection, observation ROV

Sea Maxx ROV

The Sea Maxx satellite ROV is designed and built to work in tandem with work class ROVs at depths up to 14,400 fsw (4,400 msw). The system enables inspection of difficult-to-reach and confined areas, and is deployed from a separate housing welded beneath the work class ROV.

Spectrum ROV, light intervention, subsea inspection

Spectrum® ROV

The cage-deployed Spectrum ROV represents a new generation in our fleet of light electric work class ROVs with deepwater capabilities up to 9,800 fsw (3,000 msw). This reliable, low-maintenance ROV has a small footprint and high thrust, and is ideally suited for light intervention.

Company page Since our founding in the early 1960s, Oceaneering has expanded and grown globally to service several industries such as the offshore energy industry, defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries. In 1964, Mike Hughes and Johnny Johnson formed a Gulf of Mexico diving company called World Wide Divers. The company grew in response to increasing demand for their services and in 1969 merged with two other diving companies to form Oceaneering International, Inc. To solve the toughest challenges, we do things differently, creatively, and smarter. As your trusted partner, our unmatched experience and truly innovative portfolio of technologies and solutions give us the flexibility to adapt and evolve, regardless of market conditions. Our mission is to solve the unsolvable. We thrive by creating industry-changing technically creative solutions for the most complex operational challenges under water, on land, and in space. Our five core values establish a common culture and demonstrate what is most important for us as a company. Since the beginning, the company has transformed from a small regional diving company into a global provider of engineered products and services. Today, we develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world's premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also serve the aerospace, defense, and theme park industries. Underpinning everything we do, safety is not only the foundation of our core values, but it is vital to our unmatched performance record and company culture. The industries we serve are as diverse as they are complex. Whether we are engineering deepwater umbilicals or developing robotics for aerospace applications, the safety and health of our employees, vendors, and customers is an integral part of our day-to-day business. If we are working, then our responsibility is to be working safely. Since our inception in 1964, we have placed a high value on employee safety—from diving services and subsea inspection to vessel-based installation operations. We have and will continue to evolve not only our health, safety, and environmental (HSE) processes, but those of the industries in which we work. Although we have been fatality-free since 1999, our HSE journey goes beyond statistics. As our portfolio of services has grown, we have continued to prioritize and advance our approach to HSE.
