Republic of Korea Navy Orders New Schilling Robotics HD™ ROV System (USA)

Schilling Robotics, LLC, experts in subsea systems, announced today the order for a new 150hp, 3,000m rated HD™ ROV system from GMB USA, Inc. for delivery to the Republic of Korea (ROK) Navy.

This order reflects the expansion of the ROK Navy’s salvage and rescue operations. The exceptional performance, reliability, and configurability of the HD™ results in an ideal solution for such applications. “The HD™ has been designed to be a compact, yet powerful and flexible system that can be configured for a variety of market applications,” said Tyler Schilling, chief executive officer for Schilling Robotics. “We are very pleased that the ROK Navy has selected Schilling Robotics for their expansion program.”

The HD™ ROV provides increased reliability and availability through an integrated design philosophy for all major subsystems. This drives a significant reduction in components, enables modular maintenance, and reduces major component replacement timeframes from potentially tens of hours, to one hour or less. The HD™ ROV also provides industry leading stability and position control accuracy for performing remote intervention.
