Typhoon 10: our longest tether to date!

October 12, 2020

Typhoon 10 is one of TMT’s longest serving ROV’s.

Today it left the workshop after a full refurbishment during which it was stripped down to the bare frame and rebuilt from the ground up. Now with a 150HP motor and state of the art cameras and lights, it is ready for its first responder role on the Far Saracen. Its 1100m tether is the longest soft tether TMT has ever installed and operated, giving Typhoon 10 a 1000m excursion range from the TMS (Tether Management System).

Did you know that the Far Saracen, under contract to Esso  was one of the commercial vessels providing support during the bushfire crisis earlier this year? Praise for crew of the Far Saracen supply vessel that answered Mallacoota’s bushfires SOS – ABC News
