Welcome to ROV NZ underwater services

ROV NZ is based in Nelson on the South Island of New Zealand. ROV NZ was created from a need to provide a safe cost-effective solution to marine customers and clients with real-time underwater footage and services. Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) are a safe and efficient tool to use in situations where there is a risk to divers ‘Health and Safety’. This can be due to environmental limitations to divers which include dive depth, dive duration, biological dangers and also chemical dangers.

Our ROV systems are significantly cheaper to mobilise and maintain while on projects due to the latest innovate technologies. With our portable innovative ROV Control Room, our systems and services can be mobilised easily nationwide to your project location.
