"The core of our delivery to India will consist of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) of the type HUGIN 1000 to be used for seabed surveying," said Roar Marthiniussen, Kongsberg Maritime Sales & Marketing Manager. "HUGIN AUVs are a world leader when it comes to detailed surveying of the seabed, and Kongsberg Maritime has been delivering HUGIN vessels for more than 10 years."
"This is by far the largest contract in this field to date. Apart from HUGIN, the order includes subsea positioning equipment, multibeam echosounders and underwater cameras," added Marthiniussen.
HUGIN was developed through collaboration between the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment, the Royal Norwegian Navy, Statoil and Kongsberg Maritime. Cooperation began in 1995, and the first HUGIN was put into commercial use in the North Sea in 1997.
