Over GBP1 Million Order from Fugro17/08/2011
|Kongsberg Maritime has received an order of over GBP1 million from Fugro. Kongsberg Maritime will supply a range of its latest high-resolution cameras and Mesotech scanning sonar systems as part of Fugro's 2011 ROV Sensor Refurbishment and Newbuild programme.|
The contract represents Kongsberg Maritime's fifth consecutive year working as prime camera and scanning sonar supplier under a consolidated supply framework with Fugro. By the end of this project the leading underwater camera supplier will have delivered over 500 cameras to Fugro to date.
During 2011 Kongsberg Maritime will supply more than 170 high resolution underwater cameras and over 40 avoidance sonar systems for use on Fugro's existing global fleet of ROV Systems and the Company's planned newbuild ROV Systems, including its own in-house designed and built FCV 3000 and FCV 2000 Work Class ROV Systems and the new Lynx and Panther XT Saab Seaeye ROV Systems.
The order includes a number of the latest OE14-502 multi standard High Definition (HD) cameras, an indication of the Company's increased investment in this latest technology.
The other equipment purchased includes the latest Low Light, OE13-124/125 BIT navigation camera, the OE14-366 colour zoom camera, the OE14-376/377 colour light ring camera, the OE15-108 general purpose mono camera together with the latest ultra high resolution imaging sonar.
Jim Mann, Global ROV Manager for Fugro concurs: "Relationships with our supply chain, such as the one we have with Kongsberg Maritime, are important in ensuring our ROV delivery and refurbishment schedules can be met, even when we have to re-direct an ROV System to another area at the point of delivery where minor changes are required in a rush to meet contractual specifications; for instance changing from PAL format TV to NTSC when the ROV relocates from Europe to the Americas. Kongsberg Maritime have sufficient resources to be able to get the right equipment to us when we need it."

It's not an AUV but an UAV. So an unmanned vehicle, but in the air instead of underwater. This movie shows a demonstration of the bathymetric laser scanning capabilities of the RIEGL VQ-820-GU hydrographic airborne sensor in reality. For more information on the technical side, please see the news release on Hydro International.
