Argus Remote Systems

Argus Remote Systems is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of electric work-class remote-operated vessels (ROVs).

The company’s range of electric ROVs range from small observation (OBS) class to larger work-class vessels.

Electrical ROVs for offshore and subsea applications

Argus Remote Systems specialises in the design and manufacture of electric-powered ROVs for offshore and marine industries. The company has a wide variety of systems, such as the Argus Rover to the large work-class Argus Worker XL.

The company uses AC motor technology, which acts as an equivalent to the AC motors on hydraulic power units (HPU), but its lightweight, smaller design makes its electric ROVs more flexible for additional applications when compared with hydraulically powered ROVs.

Control and handling systems for electric ROVS

Every ROV supplied by Argus Remote Systems comes with a handling system and umbilical cabling. The company also integrates launch and recovery system (LARS) winches and components with an optional tether management system (TMS).

The production processes of the control systems are performed in-house, from drawing the circuit boards to assembling the finished product, which means that clients have a reliable source for spare parts for the next 20 years.

All systems can be customised to suit the needs, requirements or specifications of the client.

High-definition video equipment

Argus Remote Systems is also a leading provider of high-quality lighting and video content.

Argus was one of the first industrial companies to introduce high-definition (HD) video content on its vessels, so clients can capture clear underwater images, even in murky waters, which increases the effectiveness during visual surveys.

Operators also benefit from the HD quality, to manage the vessel more proficiently.

About Argus Remote Systems

Based in Bergen, Norway, Argus Remote Systems was established in 1992 with ROV market experts. The company has been manufacturing electric propulsion ROV over the last 20 years, due to its increased efficiency in comparison with hydraulic propulsion ROVs.

The company has two main business areas; the production of standard ROVs and the development and sale of client-specified systems. It also has an operation department to support ARGUS ROV clients.

They are experienced ROV supervisors with international track record.

Argus Remote Systems is NS-EN 9001 and NS-EN 14001 qualified and a member of the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA).
