Imenco’s Cameras Get High Scores

One of the world’s largest manufacturers of ROVs recently ran a series of independent tests comparing subsea cameras from all the main suppliers. The purpose of these tests was to determine the best cameras to fit their future fleet of ROVs.

Among the variety of suppliers, Imenco’s Bull Shark HD-SDi camera and Hammerhead Shark SD Colour Zoom camera came out top of the scorecard.

“Imenco has developed a series of subsea cameras and lights for harsh conditions; some are even designed to operate at 6,000 msw. The cameras are developed and manufactured locally. For the people that spend a lot of time and efforts on these cameras, it is a boost to receive this kind of feedback compared to our global competitors,” says Åge Baustad from Imenco’s camera production in Grinde.

Breakthrough Subsea Cameras and Lights innovation

While two of Imenco’s subsea cameras were ranked as best in the industry, Imenco is working on the development of the next generation cameras.

“We are launching a number of new mechanical and electronic products in the near future,” says Jan Wulfsberg from Imenco’s R&D department. He is particularly highlighting a new platform called “smart camera” that will give completely new possibilities to the subsea industry.

“The transition to «smart cameras» will be the same breakthrough for the subsea industry as the transition from mobile phones to smart phones,” says Wulfsberg. He has been leading the development of a number of today’s cameras and is deeply involved in the development of this new technology.

“To be able to participate in the development of new solutions, is perhaps the most exciting aspect of Imenco’s engineering department.”
