Deep Trekker Launches New Underwater ROV

June 29, 2021

Canadian-based Deep Trekker has announced a new submersible remotely operated vehicle (ROV), the Pivot, which aims to strike a perfect balance between size and power for underwater robotics.

Equipped with six strong thrusters powered by lithium ion batteries, the Pivot gives users stability, power, speed and control in a portable package, Deep Trekker said. With a 97-degree rotating tool, positioning pilots can take advantage of flexible imaging options and convenient tool manipulation from a stable platform. A 220-degree range of motion from the HD camera lets users complete inspections in a timely, straightforward manner, the company added.

“The Pivot is a completely reimagined submersible ROV,” said Sam Macdonald, president of Deep Trekker. “The third ROV to fill our line, the Pivot is the perfect middle ground between our DTG3 and our Revolution ROVs.”

Founded in 20210 with a mission to create portable, affordable, and easy-to-use harsh environment robotic inspection tools, Deep Trekker develops ROVs, utility vehicles and pipe crawlers. Headquartered in Kitchener, Ontario, all of its engineering and manufacturing is completed in-house.

“At Deep Trekker we’re proud of our robust vehicles and the Pivot is no exception,” said Macdonald. “The carbon fiber and aluminum frame combined with stainless steel components, magnetically coupled thrusters and intelligent design ensures that operators can trust their vehicle to get the job done.”

Industries served by the company include aquaculture, municipal contracting, military and defense, search and rescue, shipping, and infrastructure, among others. For more details on the company, visit the Deep Trekker website.
