Handbook for ROV Pilot / Technicians - order - $245
This most popular book is now available in its second edition, which has been fully revised to bring its huge information content up to date. Originally produced as the result of over six years experience in providing training courses at Wray Castle College, this new edition covers the essential skills and knowledge that ROV Pilot/Technicians should, but all too often don’t, have in order to perform satisfactorily. The book covers all types of ROVs and their applications including: inspection, intervention, construction, cable laying, MCM, ROTV and others. In addition the description of piloting skills, photography, video and all the technical aspects are included in a very practical and comprehensive way, enabling it to be used for ‘on-the-job’ training in appropriate situations. The book includes an appendix of useful technical data that is so often hard to find just when you need it, making it the kind of book that will become an essential ‘tool’ for the job. From the company point of view, the book offers an explanation of quality systems and their importance, including an essential chapter on offshore safety, enabling it to bridge the gap between onshore management and offshore personnel in these important areas.
