1 Ton of foam

But this is no ordinary foam, is made specially for undersea applications.
We are now in the last stages of building the floatatation component for the the the new 'Typhoon' deep sea ROV.

The main float block (pictured) weighs approximately 800kg, and when the other segments are attached and fixed into place it will bring the gross weight of the floatation into the 1 ton vicinity.
When the block has been machined to final size and attached to the ROV unit, the complete ROV will be capable of sustaining depths of over 1000m for prolonged periods of time.
