SEAMOR ROV provides support to oil tanker leak

Spring 2018

A SEAMOR Chinook was sent by our dealers in China, Fishsonic, to inspect a massive oil spill resulting from a damaged Iranian tanker off China’s East coast. The ROV was able to locate and monitor where oil was leaking and inspect the seafloor for potential contamination.

The conditions at the site were challenging, with currents of two knots or stronger, but unlike other inspection-class ROVs, the Chinook was able to navigate these conditions with no problems.
