Nido Robotics, the Murcia-based Spanish firm dedicated to the development of cutting-edge subsea robotics, will be proudly exhibiting its family of game-changing underwater drones on stand J620 at Oceanology International 2020 (March 17-19, ExCel London).

Currently, the core products in Nido Robotics’ portfolio are two remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). The super-portable Sibiu Nano weighs a mere 5.15 kilograms, will fit into the smallest spaces, and is as easy to manoeuvre as it is to transport. However, its performance punches well above its weight, enabling operators to conduct detailed underwater inspection procedures in depths of up to 100 metres with the crisp live images provided by its 1080p camera.

The 16-kg Sibiu Pro, meanwhile, is a modular system capable of carrying several payloads for a range of applications including the cleaning of subsea assets, measuring cathodic protection, gauging metal thickness or collating environmental data. Both systems are robust, with interchangeable batteries that make them fully independent, and can easily be deployed by hand by anyone, anywhere, at any time.

“My expert international team and myself are all pleased and excited to be bringing our specialised maritime industry products, services and solutions to an event as prestigious and influential as Oi London 2020,” says Roy Torgersen, founder and CEO of Nido Robotics, “and we’re very much looking forward to displaying our uniquely compact, tough, versatile and cost-efficient family of underwater drones to as many show visitors as possible.”
