To help reduce the environmental impact of our operations, we partner with several organizations to lend aid and resources, increase public awareness and assist with educational, research and leadership programs.
The Petroleum Equipment & Services Association (PESA) promotes innovation, health, safety and the environment, education, workforce development, energy security, and job creation. Oceaneering supports PESA through the election of our President and CEO Rod Larson as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for the 2019-2020 term. Our Director of Compliance, Jock Pool, serves as co-chair of PESA's Environmental, Social, and Governance Committee.

Research and Development
Our Research and Development efforts focus on introducing technologies that improve work activities and efficiency while reducing environmental impact.
Our objective is to engineer the low carbon future with our advanced technologies. To accomplish this goal, we are working to advance remote operations, which reduces carbon footprints by transferring offshore workers to onshore control centers, which allows for less risk, greater collaboration and faster response.
Our Remote Piloting and Automated Control Technology (RPACT) diminishes operational and environmental risks by reducing the need for personnel on board and related mobilization requirements.
Onshore Control Center, launched in 2016, provides a remote base for client representatives, additional ROV pilots and subject matter experts who are available 24/7 to meet any challenge.
Our E-ROV (Empowered ROV) is a self-contained, battery-powered, work class vehicle capable of carrying out inspection, maintenance and repair, commissioning, and underwater intervention activities. The E-ROV system can be controlled from one of our onshore control centers, with communication provided by a 4G/LTE broadband network from the buoy.
Freedom ROV is our newest resident vehicle. It is supported by a docking station at the seabed and is capable of operating in autonomous and tethered modes. In tethered mode, Freedom can be flown from our onshore control centers.
