Kongsberg Maritime awarded two contracts by SMD to supply cameras for subsea trenching & mining vehicles.

The first contract is for cameras and accessories for a new generation high powered deep water Trencher, recently delivered and currently undergoing sea trials. The Trencher is capable of operating in water depths of up to 3000 meters and jet trenching in soils of up to 100KPA and chain cutting of soils up to 250KPA. The Kongsberg Maritime camera package for this sophisticated vehicle includes:
    •    4 x OE14-366 colour zoom cameras
    •    1 x OE13-124 BIT low light navigation camera
    •    1 x OE14-376 light ring camera
    •    4 x OE10-102 serial controlled electric pan & tilt units

The second contract is for an extensive package of cameras and accessories to be installed on three of the latest generation of Soil Machine Dynamics Ltd (SMD) mining vehicles. These vehicles are flexible subsea production tools, which will be used to mine copper and gold a mile below the surface. For each mining vehicle Kongsberg Maritime is supplying a sophisticated payload of camera sensors and accessories including:
    •    2 x colour OE14-366A colour zoom cameras
    •    2 x OE13-124 BIT low light navigation cameras
