UK subsea services company, Rovco, has expanded its ROV and hydrographic survey capabilities with the addition of a Saab Seaeye Falcon DR ROV to its fleet.

The 1000m depth rated, long range Falcon DR is the most advanced electric underwater robotic system of its class. It will enhance Rovco's ability to deliver intricate and demanding missions that require a variety of high bandwidth sensors, either at depth or over long distances.

The Falcon DR marks a £200,000 investment for the firm and is part of its ambitious expansion programme. As well as its commercial use, it will support Rovco's R&D projects by carrying out research into autonomous path planning using the company's SubSLAM, live 3D vision system.

The addition of the Falcon brings Rovco's range of survey class ROVs up to five. Its fleet can be mobilised to support a wide variety of projects and are equipped with the latest technologies used for a broad range of survey and mechanical activities.

Brian Allen, CEO of Rovco, said: “The addition of the Falcon ROV is the latest in a series of developments within the business and reflects our continued expansion.

“The Falcon is part of a planned £2-3m investment into our latest technology and will allow us to grow our inspection and R&D capabilities. Alongside commercial use, it will be used to expand our research into autonomous path planning, allowing us to develop our service offering and ensure we continue to be at the forefront of innovative subsea tech.”

Supported by an expanding fleet of ROVs, Rovco has the capabilities to deliver ROV services anywhere in the world. Its subsea innovation and technologies are shaping the future of offshore inspection and hydrographic survey to improve the quality of data obtained from the underwater environment.
