Furgo Survey Ltd. ordered the latest generation Kongsberg Maritime’s Hugin AUVs to augment its existing fleet of survey vehicles.

The new Hugin 1000 AUV has depth rating of 3000 meters and includes Lithium Polymer batteries. The batteries are packaged into modules, which are stacked in the center section of the AUV. They can be swapped between dives, which reduces overall turn-around. This latest configuration has 48 Kilowatt Hours of energy, providing more than 70 hours of survey time with payload sensors collecting data simultaneously.

Hugin 1000’s modular design enables it to be packaged with systems to meet exact customer requirements. For this order, Fugro specified the latest versions of the Kongsberg EM 2040 multibeam echo sounder, EdgeTech sidescan sonar and sub-bottom profiler, forward looking sonar, turbidity sensor, acoustic Doppler current profiler, conductivity temperature and depth sensor and a camera system with energy efficient LED lighting.
