Marine robotics company Ocean Infinity has agreed a new deal with Saab for the supply of 10 electric work remotely operated vehicles (eWROV), to support its planned fleet of uncrewed robotic vessels.
Ocean Infinity’s ‘Armada’ robotic vessels are being designed to deliver sustainable at-sea services that offer up to 90% emissions savings over a conventional vessel performing a similar offshore task.
The electric operation of the eWROVs complements that sustainable vision, with the units capable of fully autonomous operation through the use of Saab’s iCON intelligent system architecture
“Lessening the environmental impact of operations at sea is the main driver behind the development of Armada,” said Dan Hook, Chief Technology Officer, Ocean Infinity.
“The all-electric eWROV, in addition to our already low-emission vessels, will enable us to support our customers with infrastructure integrity projects in the most environmentally responsible way.”
“The eWROVs will form an important part of our Armada architecture; through integration with our dynamic payload controller, we’ll be able to deploy and operate them anywhere in the world from our Remote Control Centres.”
