Norwegian companies Multiconsult and Argeo have entered into a strategic cooperation to significantly improve quality marine surveys and increase construction insight of the seabed conditions for large coastal development projects and offshore structures.
The two parties have also invested in a Kongsberg Maritime Hugin autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) under the agreement.
The objective for the cooperation is to deliver a digital 3D model that can follow the life cycle of any ocean space project. This applies from early-stage development, during operation and to decommissioning and removal, and is expected to result in a significant cost reduction and environmental impact.
The companies’ joint digital ocean space initiative will provide new and unique insights into the early phase of project development and enable reduction in project risk, costs and environmental impact. In addition, the cooperation aims to provide integrated products on mapping and surveys that will minimise project risk related to uncertainty.
The cooperation also includes the development of autonomous solutions for the collection of seabed habitat and environmental data.
