Maritime Robotics and Seabed GeoSolutions introduces world´s first USV system in the seismic business
Throughout numerous offshore trials and deployments in 2016, Maritime Robotics and Seabed GeoSolutions have quietly been qualifying the Mariner USV to become a revolutionary tool for their seismic operation. Early 2017 a long-term contract was signed, and the Mariner USV is now a standard component in Seabed Geosolutions toolbox for seismic exploration.
“This is really an amazing realization of our business proposal: USVs aiding manned operation, reducing cost and reducing HSE risk exposure,” says Vegard Evjen Hovstein, CEO of Maritime Robotics. “The contact between Seabed GeoSolutions and Maritime Robotics goes all the way back to 2008, and we have to give a great credit to a few visionary persons within Seabed GeoSolutions who had the guts to be the very first ones to move forward and realize the opportunities that many have seen”
