About Us

Continuous pro active involvement in the global subsea technology industry for over thirty years ensures Vocean  are well placed to identify with and understand challenges presented.

Vocean create electronics solutions for the submerged environment. Active markets include, offshore oil and gas, offshore renewables, freshwater site inspection and bespoke systems design.

Engineers use the latest CAD tools to create designs for electronic circuit boards and mechanical assemblies. In so doing they create innovative products for the ROV, underwater and subsea sectors.

Vocean Scope of activity

Vocean offers ROV services and Solutions engineering to the Subsea sector.  For an illustrated overview of activity in recent years please visit the Blog page.

The blog provides an insight of activity in the following areas

  • Inspection class ROV surveys
    • Tunnel surveys to 1100M excursion
    • Operational depth 400M
    • Rerenewables and Offshore Oil & gas sectors
  • 3D visualisation Photogrammetry
    • Data acquisition by ROV
    • Data Processing – 3D virtual models
  • ROV control systems design,  manufacture and commissioning
    • Work class
    • Inspection & eyeball
    • ROV control systems troubleshooting offshore – emergency call out basis worldwide
  • Innovative adaptation of contemporary technologies to underwater use
  • Electronics and sensors  interfacing to ROV

Recent innovations include an ROV deployed multi camera photogrammetry system which provides 3D photorealistic modelling.

Vocean  has partaken in operational trials of  Doppler navigation systems, buried object detection and auto pilot control systems using our Sea Eye Falcon ROV.

Vocean also has strong connections with development partners in S E Asia.

 

ROV Survey capability

Vocean  own and operate a Sea Eye Falcon ROV which has an operational depth rating increased to 400M.   Upgraded to a Fibre system with 1100M of  umbilical. The system has multiple video and serial data channels and a dedicated ethernet  fibre

The Vocean Falcon  is a first class platform for a wide range of imaging and sensing systems

Work class ROV control system upgrades

Vocean have to date delivered several control system upgrades to elderly work class ROVs, thus giving a new lease of life, with greater configuration flexibility and diagnostic tools for system monitoring.

Offshore product development

Vocean is one of a few electronics engineering companies with a proven track record of offshore product development.

Recent innovations include an ROV deployed multi camera photogrammetry system which provides 3D photorealistic virtual modelling.
This niche market has provided opportunities to demonstrate capability in the development of environment tailored products such as;
Real time electronic control systems for ROV’s, subsea tooling systems, subsea excavation machinery, Solid state gyro systems,

Vocean also has strong connections with development partners in S E Asia.

 

Electronics design services

To meet the challenges of offshore product development, Vocean has accumulated a broad portfolio of in house skills. Electronics design services using CAD tools incorporate electronic schematic capture and pcb layout design of microcontroller and interface PCAs. Further CAD tools are used for 3D design of chassis assemblies and deep water pressure housings.
Vocean create bespoke microcontroller subsystems, interconnected on CAN Bus and optical fibre links to fulfil the requirements of reliable real time control in harsh, remote environments.

Software development services

Commensurate with Electronics design services is software development. The Vocean portfolio includes the full spectrum of platforms from PIC microcontrollers to touchscreen PCs running Windows XP embedded.
