Ideal for their aquaculture work, a third Seaeye Falcon has been delivered to Chile-based Underdeep Solutions.

Reliability when working in extremely remote locations is a key reason for adding another Falcon to their fleet, says Underdeep Solutions.

It is rated the top underwater robotic vehicle in class worldwide, and Underdeepís latest Falcon is the second 1000m deep-rated version for the company, who specialise in fish farm inspection and support throughout Chile and the region.

Underdeep's three Falcons are currently working at full capacity in the aquaculture facilities of the major aquaculture company, Salmones Camanchaca.

In addition, Underdeep Solutions has been working for several years in the removal of structures from the Salmones Camanchaca concessions, as requested by current local regulations, thus complying with the continuous plan for the removal of structures for the entire company

Along with inspecting nets and moorings, Underdeep deploy their Falcons, fitted with manipulators, to perform light work tasks around fastenings and buoys, as well as collecting and recovering items.

Their new Seaeye Falcon DR is fitted with a five-function manipulator and soft rope cutter, a Kongsberg HDTV camera, B&W reverse camera, a BlueView multi-beam sonar and an Applied Acoustic high-end USBL - that is now fitted to all Underdeepís Falcons.
