Kongsberg Maritime has secured an order from Swire Seabed for a HUGIN autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) configured for commercial survey applications.

The Swire Seabed HUGIN AUV system is rated to 4500 meters and equipped with Kongsberg Maritime’s HISAS 1032 Synthetic Aperture Sonar and EM2040 multibeam echosounder.

Other payload sensors integrated in the Swire Seabed HUGIN AUV include the CathX Ocean 48.5-degree field of view still image camera and laser profiler, a sub-bottom profiler, magnetometer and turbidity sensor.

To make best use of the extensive payload sensor suite, the Swire Seabed HUGIN also includes Kongsberg Maritime’s automatic pipeline tracking solution, which utilises the HISAS Synthetic Aperture Sonar or EM2040 multibeam echo sounder to track alongside or above a pipeline, to conduct survey and inspection tasks, the company explained.

Furthermore, the Swire Seabed HUGIN includes a new LARS designed and manufactured by Kongsberg Evotec for high sea state and high freeboard operation of AUVs.

“We welcome Swire Seabed to the HUGIN AUV family,” said Atle Gran, area sales manager for Marine Robotics. “This HUGIN has a wide array of sensors and capabilities making it suitable for many different types of commercial applications including pipeline inspection, geophysical survey and hydrography.”
