Hello Oceaners!

BY: David Orr



Here I am joining the Oceana and LIFE Ba?AR Malta expedition, as part of the ROV team!

After a few days with the ROV on-deck to carry out some repairs on the umbilical cable – one of the most important parts of this little robot – it was time to test it in the water. But first we did the usual pre-dive checks that we do before any dive to see that it works properly and then we were ready to get it back into the water!

Our little robot followed our commands to use its propellers, hydraulic-powered robotic arm and then “lights, camera, action”!

The ROV is finally back in the water and ready for its next dive!
