Underwater RIG GK-GBU1
We developed and produced the prototype of the Underwater RIG “GK-GBU1” with remote control for drilling hard grounds (till to XI category of strength) and to collect samples from the seabed at a depth up to 300 m.
The project was implemented with the purpose of improvement of components and systems for hydraulic drive, automation and remote control submersible's equipment with electro-hydraulic drive.
Underwater RIG GK-GBU1 is a self-moving device with remote control. It is built on the base of track trolleys and rotary mechanism of excavator.
- Maximum operating depth — 300m
- Hydraulic unit power — 11kW
- Unit supply — ~380V
- Hole diameter — 40... 60 mm
- Max drilling depth — 1000 mm
- Unit control — from remote
During the tests Underwater RIG GK-GBU1 successfully conducted in the North Atlantic Ocean at a depth of 260m in November 2014.
