Polar King has been working on the Mohn’s Ridge for several days now. The ROVs and the AUV are working continuously to collect data and samples for MarMine. Last night the UHI system was tested for the first time on an AUV. The integration of the UHI on the AUV Hugin has been made possible by a large effort from the MarMine partner Ecotone AS and Kongsberg Maritime providing hardware and software integration, while we can thank the skilled operators of FFI for data acquisition.
The operations are continuing onboard the Polar King with ROV based tasks like sampling and visual surveys.
