Kongsberg Sells Four AUVs to C-Innovation

C-Innovation (C-I), a member of the Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO), has signed an agreement with Kongsberg Maritime to acquire four new Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV).

General Manager of C-Innovation, Richard Bourque said that this purchase allows C-I to do more advanced and faster surveys in deeper water: “We can now offer HiSAS data from the 4500 meter HUGIN to the offshore industry. All vehicles are portable to some extent but especially the MUNIN vehicles can be mobilised anywhere in a very short time. The combination of our ROVs and AUVs will put C-I in the lead on inspection maintenance and repair.”

The Kongsberg Maritime AUV delivery includes two HUGIN AUVs and two MUNIN AUVs. The HUGINs are depth rated to 4500 m and equipped with the HISAS 1032, Kongsberg Maritime’s Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS). They also carry an EM2040 multibeam echo sounder, sub-bottom profiler, colour still image camera and laser profiler.

The MUNIN AUVs are rated to 1500 m and equipped with a Kongsberg Maritime EM2040M multibeam echo sounder, sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profiler and colour still image camera.

C-I’s new HUGIN and MUNIN AUVs are specially designed for subsea inspection, mapping and pipeline surveys.
