Hydroid has recognised the Sensor and Weapon Systems Department of the Royal Netherlands Navy's Directorate of Materiel Sustainment as an authorised Remus AUV service centre.

The Directorate of Materiel Sustainment has invested in facilities, security and diagnostic equipment, and training of technical staff at its service centre in Den Helder. This integrated capability enables the centre to carry out maintenance and repair of Hydroid Remus 100 vehicles and ancillary equipment, and increase operational availability for the Netherland's navy.

Maureen Kelly, customer service manager at Hydroid, said: ‘Since the first delivery of a Remus system to the Netherlands in 2005, the Royal Netherlands Navy has worked with Hydroid Europe to set a goal of providing depot-level support.

'Through their investment in their facilities and training courses, the Royal Netherlands Navy has accomplished that. Having reviewed their maintenance capabilities firsthand, I am confident the directorate shares Hydroid's commitment to product excellence and operational availability of equipment.’
