Fugro and UK-based maritime research and technology specialist Sea-Kit International will cooperate on the development of a new range of compact uncrewed surface vessels (USVs) which can deploy remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) for marine asset inspections.

The first USVs under this project will be launched before the end of this year while a larger USV model is being designed for delivery in 2021.

These inspection-related USVs are being developed alongside Fugro’s range of USVs for hydrographic data acquisition.
