3Km fibre optic tether for hydroelectric project

Guest post: Mrs Francesca Faverio, NOVACAVI

NOVACAVI proudly supplied a 3-kilometer fibre optic tether for an upgraded Chinook ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) engaged in tunnel and penstock inspection at Old Chiriqui River projects in western Panama. With this neutrally buoyant custom tether NOVACAVI contributed in serving hydroelectric generation industry with state-of-the-art technology and experience gained over 45 years of activity.

“Engineered to perfectly match and maximize performance of this 3-kilometer capacity underwater observation and inspection-class vehicle and its reel system, 6GAX130 reinforced tether cable allowed to complete long-distance inspections more cost-efficiently and with less of an environmental impact while identifying any areas in need of repair.”
