ROV Tiburon power boost

Project Manager: Chris Grech
Lead Engineer: Ed Mellinger

This project will modify ROV Tiburon’s power system to increase the available electrical power from 15 kilowatts to 22 kilowatts. This development will be a valuable improvement to the capabilities of the Tiburon system. With the power boost, Tiburon will have the ability to run full thrust in two axes at the same time. This added power factor should improve our ability to lay cable, increase the operational safety window for launch and recovery operations, and allow Tiburon to perform other tasks in high current conditions.
