With the need for more repair work on underwater structures, the UK’s underwater vehicle specialist, Saab Seaeye, has designed four new underwater vehicle solutions.

The company showcased its solutions at Mercator Media's Seawork 2012 exhibition and says it received great interest from UK and international customers.

James Douglas, sales manager, Saab Seaeye, said: We had a very busy show as people are keen to find new technology to solve underwater problems.”

With the increase in construction of offshore windfarms and as the oil and gas industry carries out more shallow water exploration studies, the need for underwater ROVs is increasing.

In order to meet customer demands, Saab Seaeye has designed four new vehicles which have been designed to carry out repair work on underwater structures.

Its Panther XT Plus underwater vehicle has been equipped with 10 thrusters to enable it to hold a steady positions whilst battling strong cross currents which often disrupt urgent maintenance and repair work, as well as filming and survey work.

Similarly, the new slimmer version of the Cougar ROV can also swim in strong currents in shallow water and extremely hostile seas.

Saab Seaeye’s new Sabertooth autonomous underwater vehicle offers a unique solution to potential problems. Its ability to swim down long tunnels could help avoid a collapse that could cut off water supply to millions of homes.
