ADNOC Logistics & Services (ADNOC L&S), the shipping and maritime logistics arm of ADNOC, has signed an agreement with the French company SeaOwl for the design of unmanned Remotely Operated Vessels (ROV) capable of transporting vehicles, equipment and supplies to and from offshore sites.
The companies say the innovative design of the ROV will reduce carbon emissions up to 30% as the vessel will be lighter and smaller, because facilities for crew are not required. In addition, the smart automation systems will optimise routing and propulsion, further decarbonising ADNOC L&S’ offshore operations.
The design for the 55 m long ROV will allow the vessels to be operated from an onshore control room through a satellite link using the latest automation and self-navigation technology. The design will utilise state-of-the-art artificial intelligence systems to control propulsion, dynamic positioning, remote communication and cyber security.
SeaOwl, which specialises in the automation and digitalisation of maritime services, will design the vessel, oversee its construction and will facilitate the necessary navigation permits in partnership with Bureau Veritas (BV).
