Specialist submarine cable installation company, Louis Dreyfus TravOcean, has ordered two Saab Seaeye Leopards for touchdown monitoring and support.
The Leopard ROVs, with eleven thrusters and iCON intelligent control system should provide TravOcean with a stable work platform particularly in strong currents.
According to Saab Seaeye, the iCON system delivers pitch and roll stabilisation, allowing a stable flight even with large tools and sensors deployed.
Developed from the Panther XT-Plus, the Seaeye Leopard has an operating depth rate of 2000/3000 meters. Its dimensions are L 2.15m x H 1.17m x W 1.16M.
