Abstract

Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) play important roles in various underwater exploration and operation works. There are demands for modern ROVs to deliver more complicated tasks in deeper depth under broader environmental limit. This thesis provides an extensive study on the main engineering challenges for ROV launch, ultra-deep-water operation, and the recovery process under different environmental loads. A new unsupervised clustering methodology to identify the extreme current profile, an optimized configuration to minimize tension over the umbilical line during ultra-deep-water operation, and a simplified numerical model to represent snap loads during launch and recovery are the main outcomes of this study.
