Ocean Infinity, a hydrographic and geophysical survey company, has placed three separate orders for a total of five Kongsberg Maritime HUGIN Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) systems, increasing its inventory to 15.

The AUVs are supplied with the latest generation Kongsberg Maritime HISAS 1032 synthetic aperture sonar, giving Ocean Infinity a total of six HUGINs with the ability to deliver high resolution imaging in its fleet.

“It has been extremely satisfying to receive the markets’ continued positive response to our technology driven business. The HUGIN AUV is at the heart our strategy and this further order, which takes our fleet to 15 in total, reflects our clients’ appetite for high quality, highly efficient and highly cost effective outcomes which legacy technologies simply cannot deliver,” said Oliver Plunkett, chief executive office of Ocean Infinity.

“The latest order from Ocean Infinity cements its status as one of Kongsberg Maritime’s most important customers,” said Thomas Nygaard, vice president Marine Robotics, Kongsberg Maritime. “We are pleased to continue to support Ocean Infinity’s operations and value the confidence placed in the HUGIN AUV. The capabilities of our Marine Robotics department continue to grow, and complex multiple vehicle operations in ultra-deep water by Ocean Infinity drives that process to push the boundaries of what is possible.”
