Israel’s University of Haifa Orders Saab Seaeye Leopard ROV

Israel’s University of Haifa has ordered a Saab Seaeye Leopard remotely operated vehicle (ROV).

The University noted that the Leopard will be a key resource for a new deep-sea research centre which opened recently.

The ROV will serve the entire marine research community in Israel through the national consortium of universities, colleges and government research institutes called the “Mediterranean-Sea Research Center of Israel” (MERCI).

The focus will be on scientific study, education and research including environmental monitoring, marine archaeology and other types of marine research, said Ben Herzberg, chief engineer from the Helmsley Charitable Trust Mediterranean Sea Research Center, Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences at the University of Haifa.

In choosing the Leopard, said Ben Herzberg, they evaluated a range of ROVs from different manufacturers.

“We opted for the Leopard, not just because of its technological excellence and Saab Seaeye being the largest manufacturer of electric ROVs in the world, but also because universities and scientific users we contacted gave Saab Seaeye the best and most positive feedback.”
