Kawasaki Heavy Industries has launched a subsidiary in Aberdeen, Scotland, called Kawasaki Subsea (UK) Limited, to support the production, sale and post-sale servicing of AUVs, the company announced on 1 February.

The company intends to increase its market presence and construct a business network for the North Sea oil and gas fields through the new subsidiary.

Kawasaki is developing an AUV equipped with a robot arm to support subsea pipeline inspections for launch in 2020. The AUV fuses submarine and industrial UGV technologies, and will meet growing demand for pipeline maintenance in offshore oil and gas fields.

Kawasaki also intends to launch operations and maintenance services businesses using AUVs in the future and expand out from pipeline inspection applications.
