The Moskito is an electric, remotely operated hot tap tool. Using patented technology, three steps are combined in one machine:
- Securing machine to hull
- Drilling drain holes for inlet and outlet
- Fastening valve and hose connection
The entire process is operated and monitored from a surface laptop. ROV or divers are only used to position the tool on the wreck, open and close the valve and connect hoses if required. Moskito is secured to the hull using three powerful electromagnets.
The tripod legs are controlled individually with high precision, allowing the operator to align the machine properly on curved or uneven surfaces. The light-weight umbilical is suitable up to medium water depth, without the need for any tether management system. For larger depths, the Moskito can be run directly via the ROV.
