Saab Seaeye Falcon for Huon Aquaculture

Privately owned producer of fresh salmon in Australia, Huon Aquaculture, has ordered a second Saab Seaeye Falcon underwater e-robotic vehicle.

Their newest Falcon is now enhanced with Saab Seaeye’s iCON behaviour-based intelligent control architecture.

Huon’s main use of the Falcons is to inspect the nets, rigging and moorings in its aquaculture pens.

“The key reason we decided to purchase a second Falcon is its reliability and Saab Seaeye’s excellent after sales support,” says Huon’s business development manager, James Bender.

Shea Cameron, Huon’s subsea manager, added: “We like the low height of the machine because we can deploy it sideways between a walkway and the net.

“The SIMCT thrusters are also ideal for aquaculture use with no shaft seals to service or inspect. None of the other machines we own at the moment have this advantage. We also like the ease of servicing the machine so feel comfortable ordering a new one with iCON that is compatible with our current machine.”
