A ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) is a safe and cost effective means of performing inspection tasks and eliminating the risk to Human life in the form of a diver, this has been displayed in the Offshore industry for several decades now and is also a very cost effective solution to your underwater visual requirements.
At West Coast diving we know the risks involved in diving and for certain tasks a ROV can be an excellent tool.
A ROV can stay in the water indefinitely to complete the task. They can work at a greater depth and range if required again having a advantage over a diver.
