Under the agreement recently signed, the companies will work together to offer inspection and survey services using the A18D AUV autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV).
ECA Group's A18D AUV is able to dive to a depth of 3000m and work autonomously for 24 hours. The AUV can carry out inspection and 3D mapping missions.
As part of the agreement, ECA Group will lease the A18D AUV to Petrus and provide operational support. Petrus will undertake and coordinate missions from preparation to data processing as well as the delivery of results to the customer.
The agreement could also extend to other ECA systems such as A9 type portable AUVs (A9-S or A9-E) or ROVING BAT ROV cleaning and inspection ROVs.
