ROV survey


Our staff are experienced in working alongside Remotely Operated Vehicles for underwater exploration in support of heritage investigation and in using the acquired data. We are able to supply staff to work alongside your teams on-board vessels or to review stills and film from ROV surveys to protect heritage found offshore during development. If your company are conducting ROV surveys offshore and are likely to encounter archaeological remains, stationing a member of our team on-board vessel or providing us with data after collection can ensure that heritage on your development is interpreted and understood in an appropriate and cost-effective manner. For example, Wessex Archaeology has worked with still images from Unexploded Ordnance surveys (UXO) conducted ahead of renewable energy developments to identify cannon and ship material which were previously thought to be military ordnance.
