Kongsberg Maritime unveils Sølvkrona vessel

27th March 2017 - 10:45 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Maritime has launched its new Sølvkrona research vessel, the company announced on 21 March.

The vessel is designed for testing autonomous technologies, both for autonomous underwater vessels (AUV) operations and for testing and pre-installation of acoustic sensor systems.

Sølvkrona is equipped with HiPAP 502 for underwater positioning and communication, a Seapath 330 position and orientation system and maritime broadband radio.

Bjørn Jalving, EVP of Subsea Division at Kongsberg Maritime, said: 'A primary purpose of Sølvkrona is managing growth in delivery volume for AUVs. Sølvkrona and Simrad Echo are vital resources throughout Kongsberg and will be important for further development of marine robotics, networked maritime operations (remote operations) and autonomy.'
