SEAMOR MARINE: CHINOOK

The Chinook is an industrial-grade inspection ROV renowned for its versatile capabilities. With a standard version exploring depths up to 300 meters (1,000 feet) or a deep-water variant reaching depths of 600 meters (2,000 feet), it offers extensive operational range.


As a true workhorse, the Chinook provides a stable platform while remaining compact, allowing it to navigate tight spaces and be easily stored when not in use. Equipped with multiple handles and frame cross members, it can be handled by two individuals with ease.


For enhanced versatility, the Chinook can be customized with additional thrusters, navigational aids, manipulators, tool skids, and more, catering to diverse operational requirements.
