UK Ship Register Signs ASV’s Unmanned Vessel to the Flag

The UK Ship Register has signed its first unmanned vessel to the flag, the ASV’s C-Worker 7.

The C-Worker 7 will be used for work such as subsea positioning, surveying and environmental monitoring. It can be used under direct control, semi-manned or completely unmanned.

Doug Barrow, director UK Ship Register said: “By supporting emerging technologies such as autonomous systems, we are helping to keep the UK at the forefront of the global maritime industry.

“The UK Flag is growing, as we have invested in resources to meet the demands of that growth. We have the support of the UK Government, and the wider UK maritime industries to continue our expansion.”

Vince Dobbin, sales and marketing director of ASV Global said: “We are delighted to have achieved the first registration of a semi-autonomous vessel for maritime operations. The MCA has been critical in enabling ASV to reach this pivotal milestone recognizing the prominence of unmanned systems in the maritime environment.”

ASV has designed and built more than 80 vessels which are now deployed all over the world in the service of the oil and gas, scientific and defence sectors.
