Saab's Seaeye Falcon ROV will be deployed by KB Dykk and AQS to support aquaculture operations in Norway, the company announced on 27 June.

The two companies, KB Dykk and AQS, have merged to form a group and become the second biggest aquaculture support organisation in Norway. The group now has a total of 23 service vessels and over 60 divers.

The 300m and 1000m depth rated Falcons are capable of reducing dive time and improving diver safety. The ROV is able to undertake a range of missions including inspecting nets, moorings and floats. The ROV will be used to pinpoint and examine locations of interest before the diver goes down, then transport tools and parts during the diving operation; or perform missions in areas too hazardous for divers.

Falcon’s intelligent control system has a plug and play configuration. This intelligent control, matched with its five powerful thrusters, brings precise manoeuvrability along with an ability to hold steady in turbulent waters and strong currents.
