On-line fibre optic video surveillance of the ‘Pull in – Pull out’ pipeline connection process by the Falcon’s HD camera is the vehicle’s initial contracted task. Operators on board will monitor the process throughout the operation.

SISTAC Sistemas de Acesso already has Seaeye Tigers and Falcons in their fleet, and long experience working with Seaeye over many years means they like to keep their fleet standardized.

They say their choice of Saab Seaeye comes because the company has more than 20 years’ experience of robotic vehicle manufacturing and SISTAC find their vehicles “very reliable in terms of operational perspective”.

They also like that Seaeye has a strong support team with a high degree of technical knowledge of the equipment and new technologies in the underwater robotics market.

An upgrade is also being made to another of the Falcons already in their fleet with the same fibre-optics system as the new vehicle.

In choosing the Falcon, SISTAC is getting the world’s top-selling underwater vehicle in its class with a reliability record covering thousands of hours of undersea operations during its 20 years of proven success.

A handy metre-sized, multi-tasking, easy to use vehicle, the Falcon is depth rated to 300m, with five powerful thrusters and intelligent control.

Saab Seaeye’s revolutionary iCON™ future-flexible intelligent control system, has created a highly manoeuvrable vehicle that can handle strong currents whilst fully loaded with a wide range of cameras, sensors and tools.

SISTAC say that for their pipeline contract, the Falcon was the vehicle most able to meet their customer’s expectations.

SISTAC is a leader in inspection, maintenance and repair in the offshore oil and gas industry in Brazil, through access to offshore support vessels, divers, climbers, riggers and ROVs.
