ECA Group will provide a 5-function electric manipulator arm to be integrated onto an ROV belonging to the University of Shanghai to perform subsea scientific research missions.
Shanghai University, for its subsea scientific research missions, operates a compact ROV rated to 1000m depth.
To enhance the ROV performance and widen their scope of actions, the university selected the ARM 5E Micro for its performances, high lifting capability, compactness and easy integration onto any type of ROV. ECA noted.
This solution was specifically designed to answer the needs of research institutes and underwater inspection service providers in search of efficient tools to perform operations in the field of Oceanography, Hydrography and Aquaculture.
The arm will be delivered in September 2019, through ECA Group distributor in China – Tianjin Ocean Exploration.
