During MMT’s participation in the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (Black Sea MAP), the Surveyor Interceptor ROV (SROV) has set new records for depth and speed.

The SROV, used for geophysical surveys to detect former land surfaces buried below the current seabed, set new records for both depth of 1800 meters and sustained speed over 6 knots and covered a distance of 1000 km.

MMT’s founder and CTO, Ola Oskarsson, who has developed SROV together with partners, said: “It was developed for the oil and gas industry but is capable to inspect and explore various seabed mapping projects. The new depth and speed records is a great success for MMT.”

The SROV was deployed from Stril Explorer vessel, together with another remotely operated vehicle (ROV).

Down to 1670 meters below the surface in the Black Sea, over 40 shipwrecks were found and some had never been seen before.

The Black Sea MAP provided new data on the maritime inter-connectivity of Black Sea coastal communities and manifest ways of life and seafaring that stretch back into prehistory.
