Guardian Offshore together with Guardian Geomatics has partnered with Ocean Infinity, to deliver a fleet of autonomous surface and underwater vehicles to the Australasian and SE Asian region.
Ocean Infinity and Guardian partnership is aimed at the oil and gas, government and defence markets, based on experience working with commercial and government agencies, vessel operations, environmental, geophysics, hydrographic surveying, cloud-based processing and reporting.
Bringing a fleet of autonomous vehicles coupled to new-build motherships, the Ocean Infinity and Guardian partnership is said to set a new benchmark in capability and capacity to the region.
Guardian managing directors, Darren Kolln and Paul Kennedy, stated: “This partnership demonstrates the long term investment, commitment and industry leadership of Ocean Infinity and Guardian to meet strategic requirements of mapping and understanding the marine environment while significantly reducing the environmental footprint of surveying.”
Ocean Infinity CEO, Oliver Plunkett, said: “Today’s announcement marks another milestone in Ocean Infinity’s development. Collaborating with the Guardian team will ensure that we can meet the continuing strong demand for subsea technological solutions that deliver better results, faster and more economically.”
The fleet of vehicles should be arriving in Q4 2018.
