Drafinsub Picks Up Saab Seaeye Falcon ROV

Italian underwater works company Drafinsub has chosen Saab Seaeye Falcon electric robotic vehicle for the wide ranging and complex tasks.

“We chose the Falcon because it’s the industry standard for observation robotic vehicles,” said Andrea Dellacasa from Drafinsub. “It is reliable, scalable and suitable for most kind of works, from observation to non-destructive testing and survey.

“Our company has more than 20 years experience with ROVs and we felt it was the right time to take a leap in quality, with the completion of our second diving saturation system.”

Drafinsub said it will use the Falcon for various tasks including: diver assistance in shallow and deep water (300 msw); non-destructive ultrasonic testing with an onboard Cygnus, and cathodic protection with an onboard probe; general visual inspections on pipelines and other structures.

In addition, Drafinsub uses robotic vehicles for the placement and recovery of the Bisson’s Abissi sparkling wine bottles, stored underwater in Portofino, as the seabed is considered an ideal environment in terms of constant temperature, half light and pressure.
