DCNS Expands ROV Fleet with Saab Seaeye Tiger and Falcon
DCNS Group has enhanced its ROV capability with a Saab Seaeye Tiger and Saab Seaeye Falcon ROVs.
Both ROVs will be deployed by DCNS Far East – DCNS’ Singapore-based subsidiary across Asia, as the company extends its operations in the region.
Nicolas Leluan, DCNS Far East’s managing director, said that they will be used in a wide range of projects.
These include inspection of platforms, pipelines and moorings – together with salvage work and for the support of work-class ROV and diving operations.
In addition, the Falcon will be deployed on infrastructure assessment projects across Asia for life extension evaluation that will involve bridge piling, jetties and harbours. The ROV will also be used for seabed surveys, the company informed.
Each vehicle has the systems architecture and chassis capacity to house a variety of observation and inspection devices, with additional tooling skids easily fitted as needed, Saab noted.
