The new order follows the award of major contracts in the aquaculture, renewable, and oil and gas sectors that will see the Falcon fleet working over multi-year contracts providing a range of services in Europe, North America and Australia.

With the addition of the new units, UCO’s fleet of Seaeye Falcons stands at 33.

Saab noted that UCO had deployed Seaeye Falcon vehicles since 2018 across three continents covering various sectors of industry. The Falcon is designed and manufactured at the company’s Fareham site.
