DCNS Group has enhanced its ROV capability with a Saab Seaeye Tiger and Saab Seaeye Falcon. Both ROVs will be deployed by DCNS Far East – DCNS’ Singapore-based subsidiary across Asia – as the company extends its operations in the region.
DCNS Far East chose the two ROVs for their versatility and reliability – and for their power to cope with currents.
Nicolas Leluan, DCNS Far East’s managing director, says they will be used extensively in a wide range of large and complex projects.
These include inspection of platforms, pipelines and moorings – together with salvage work and for the support of work-class ROV and diving operations.
In addition, the Falcon will be deployed on infrastructure assessment projects across Asia for life extension evaluation that will involve bridge piling, jetties and harbours.
The ROV will also be used for seabed surveys.
