Turkey Gets Falcon ROV for Emergency Response

The rapid detection of hazardous substances in Turkey’s offshore waters is made possible with a Saab Seaeye Falcon operated by MOST Maritime and Environmental Services.

MOST Maritime’s emergency response team chose the remotely operated vehicle for its speedy deployment complete with cameras and multi-sensor detectors, ready to locate the incident, observe and secure the danger.

The company provides global emergency response services for petroleum and other harmful substance spills in the sea and inland waterways worldwide.

Hydrocarbon Leak Detection

The Falcon’s rapid response capability makes it a vital resource for hydrocarbon leak detection where speed is essential to avoid the serious consequences of economic loss and environmental pollution.

Depth-rated to 300m and 1,000m, the Falcon is among the world’s top-selling underwater vehicles in its class and is noted for its ability to handle a wide range of cameras, sensors and tools, with a reliability record covering thousands of hours of undersea operations.

The Seaeye Falcon’s success comes from its reputation as a versatile resource, with five powerful thrusters packed into a compact and easy-to-handle metre-sized vehicle enhanced by Saab Seaeye’s iCON intelligent control architecture. The resultant design is a highly manoeuvrable, multi-tasking vehicle that is easy to use and able to handle strong currents.
