Tuesday, February 21, 2006
Following the l deployment of Fugro's Echo Surveyor Hugin 3000 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) in 2005, Fugro NV, in the Netherlands, has placed an order with Kongsberg Maritime for the purchase of second deep water Hugin 3000 AUV.
The new build Hugin 3000 will be equipped to the same standard as Echo Surveyor. It will also incorporate the modifications that were already made to the Echo Surveyor to enhance operational efficiency, improve safety and environmental performance to meet Fugro's requirements.
The new build Hugin 3000 will be delivered and tested during winter 2006 and will be ready for operation before the end of the year.
