Development of innovative mechanical instruments for marine environments

A number of equipment and instruments (ROVs) will be implemented in order to apply the new materials and to develop new methods of protection. These tools will be designed to operate in situations where the direct intervention of qualified personnel would not be possible.

Such situations happen when the artefacts to be preserved are located in areas not accessible to the operators or risky environments (inaccessible spaces, medium and high depth, etc.).

In the second phase of the project, which will be carried out in a marine protected area, new products, methods and instruments will be tested in situ. The interventions will be carried out with the involvement of qualified trained restoration operators, and using new, technologically advanced equipment implemented in this project.
