Huon Aquaculture in Australia has doubled its fleet of Saab Seaeye, UK, Falcon ROVs to four vehicles.
The two new Falcons will join the fleet to inspect nets, rigging and moorings at Huon’s aquaculture pens.
The pens are positioned in areas of strong current and rough water favoured for salmon farming as it mimics their natural habitat.
“Designed for such strong currents and turbulent waters, the Falcon can remain steady under robust conditions whilst undertaking delicate or rugged tasks and manoeuvre with precision as needed,” said Saab Seaeye.
The company added: “The Falcon’s iCON behaviour-based intelligent control architecture offers precise positioning and active station keeping to let the operator concentrate on the task in hand, thereby reducing their workload.”
