A well established and world renowned customer of Carroll & Meynell, SMD (Soil Machine Dynamics), has just received approval from DNV-GL for a portable control cabin from which submersible ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) are piloted. The 20 foot container cabin which is transferable between on-shore installations, off-shore rigs or platforms and ships has now been fully approved to the DNV standard for certification 2.7-2 (2013) for Off-Shore Service Modules.

As part of this approval the cabin includes a Carroll & Meynell 295kVA step up transformer (pictured) with a maximum 3.55kV output voltage to power the main drive motors of the ROV. The transformer has been approved as part of an integrated system within the cabin which includes both input and output overload protection devices.
