Inspection Class ROV's

However, we do more than just operate work boats; We have sub-sea capability.

Bill Ruck, the MD of Moray Marine, has over 25 years experience in the ROV industry and today we operate 3 ROVs.

These easily portable “Inspection Class” ROVs are ideal for video inspection but can also be fitted with any number of attachments depending on the task, some of which have been developed in-house by ourselves.

These ROVs can handle a wide variety of jobs ranging from surveys and inspections on many different types of sub-sea structures to being amazingly useful at finding and recovering all sorts of items dropped on the sea-bed.
We’ve recovered all sorts of dropped objects over the years including hundreds of scientific research moorings, clump weights, cars, scaffold poles, even whole gantry structures.
