Stinger Technology, the next generation subsea marine robotics company, has been awarded an R&D contract with Neptune Energy, for the development, qualification and field trials of autonomous inspection/ intervention subsea drones.
The solutions that will be developed for Neptune Energy aims to save costly vessel operations and reduce risk through continuous availability of versatile intervention tools.
This contract confirms Stinger’s position as a forefront company as supplier of solutions for autonomous and onshore supported underwater drones in the energy sector.
The project team undertook the challenge of exploring the potential use of Archimedes screws as a means of propulsion for remote operated vehicles (ROV) and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) on the seabed.
