Deploying the most advanced work-class ROVs
Our ROVs are designed to minimize nonproductive time, with a range of features to ease operations, maintenance and repair activities through an intuitive design and build philosophy.
Our Schilling Robotics legacy brand entered the deepwater arena in 1985 offering manipulator systems followed by its first Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in 2000. Since then, our designs and concepts have been dedicated to improving reliability, maintainability and productivity.
Today, we deploy the world’s most advanced work-class ROVs and are a leading supplier of intervention systems to nearly every operator of subsea ROVs in the oil and gas industry.
- The Heavy Duty (HD) 150hp ROV provides a range of capabilities from a multilevel platform for use in the drill support and IMR segments, the construction sector and the research, salvage and military support arenas.
- The Ultra Heavy Duty (UHD-III) ROV is the ultimate heavy construction vehicle powered by a 250hp motor vehicle with 150hp auxiliary power to perform all subsea tasks through its software controlled ISOL-8 pump. The compact and powerful ISOL-8 pump can deliver more than 50 gpm at 5,000 psi for BOP intervention operations while in construction mode the ISOL-8 pump can be configured with single or duel fluid outputs.
Delivering intuitive maintenance solutions
Our modular approach to system design encompasses mechanical, electrical and hydraulic subsystems providing a robust and reliable ROV. This design philosophy supports intuitive system maintenance and comprehensive system diagnostics.
Our ROV systems support the pilot operator through high fidelity, automated control modes such as Intelligent Power Management, StationKeep™, AutoDisplacement™ and AutoTrack. These standard systems provide precision and stability for performing intricate subsea intervention tasks. These automated features enable ROV pilots to focus on complex operations while the ROV automatically compensates for high currents and low visibility.
Reliable, powerful, precise
Our robust and reliable work class ROVs offer many superior benefits to our clients.

Our Heavy Duty (HD) ROV was a major step change in work class ROV design. We introduced a modular design whereby packages can be removed and replaced rapidly within 60 minutes. In addition to the ease of maintenance and repair, the modular design provides more inboard space for additional intervention tools and work packages.
The 150hp HD ROV is optimized for installation onboard drilling rigs and ROV support vessels where available deck space is limited. Combined with our electric TMS system, the standard model is capable of excursions of 425 meters, 850 meters or 1,500 meters.
The Ultra Heavy Duty (UHD) ROV is the most advanced and powerful work class ROV available. Its design is underpinned by the HD modular design but is a larger vehicle with a 250hp motor and 150hp auxiliary output.
Unique to the UHD-III is its onboard software driven ISOL-8 pump with its ability to generate 50 gpm at 5,000 psi to effect a BOP ram closure in less than 45 seconds.
The UHD-III is capable of completing arduous tasks that require significant power to lift, position and install subsea field equipment.
The EXE Tether Management System (TMS) has been designed around a field-proven “shuttling drum” concept that provides simple tether routing. The complete tether drum moves on a carriage system allowing the tether to exit the drum directly above and through the payout sheave.
Power supply to the TMS requires only a single branch circuit from the surface. This contributes to a smaller umbilical cross section and a more compact surface power distribution unit without sacrificing performance.
