Cleaning in the splash zone


Removing and preventing marine growth and corrosion are crucial steps before inspections or repair work. However, offshore structures in the splash zone present access challenges, particularly in adverse weather conditions. OceanTech’s remotely operated robotic solutions perform splash zone operations beyond the capabilities of divers and ROVs. Leveraging our field-proven technology alongside advanced rope access and lifting methods simplifies these operations by reducing costs, enhancing safety, and minimising environmental impact.

Our services


OceanTech offers remotely operated robotic solutions for cleaning marine growth and removing corrosion protection, ensuring structures are prepared for inspection, repair, and modification work:

  • High-pressure water cleaning
  • Ultra-high-pressure water cleaning
  • Mechanical cleaning tools (brushes, flex clean, etc.)
  • Nozzle technology for cleaning inside pipes and bends


We bring extensive and diverse experience, having completed over 70 projects across 50 installations globally.

Modularity in design


Our modular approach, along with our technology's adaptability to diverse materials, geometries, and surface conditions, enables our access robots and tools to connect to any offshore asset or structure, including:

  • Access platforms
  • Boat landings
  • Bracings and cross-bracings
  • Concrete gravity platforms
  • Conductor pipes
  • Corrosion protection systems
  • Drillships
  • Floating production, storage and offloading units (FPSOs)
  • Jacket structures
  • Jack-up rigs
  • Riser systems
  • Semi-submersible platforms
  • Semi-submersible drilling rigs
  • Spar platforms
  • Tension leg platforms (TLPs)
  • Transition pieces
  • Turbine monopile foundations
  • Turbine jacket foundations
  • Turbine towers

Why choose us


Cost savings

We offer cost savings by eliminating the need for divers, ROVs, or support vessels. Our robotic solutions reduce waiting times for weather windows, minimise downtime, guarantee predictable timelines for complex projects, and offer significantly lower daily rates compared to ROV operations.

Enhanced safety

Our robots and tools are operated from the topside, enabling unmanned operations near structures in confined spaces. This significantly enhances operational safety. We have achieved over 200,000 incident-free offshore work hours, demonstrating the reliability and effectiveness of our technology.

Reduced environmental impact

Our robots use existing infrastructure, allowing us to perform operations without the support vessels typically needed for divers and ROVs. This approach cuts emissions and lowers the risk of oil spills. Additionally, our ability to operate regardless of weather conditions decreases delays and reduces your environmental footprint.

How we work


OceanTech is a turnkey provider, managing all project interfaces to save our clients time and effort. Our integrated approach includes our unique Splash Zone Concept. In addition to our core solutions, we provide feasibility studies, design and engineering, planning and execution of intricate lifting operations, rental of ROV-tooling, and equipment testing at our Subsea Test Centre.

Our team is actively engaged in every project phase, from initial planning to implementation. We ensure each project is conducted safely, efficiently, and predictably with minimal handovers.
