Autonomous Underwater Vehicle "SPICE"
SPICE contributes to a significant
reduction in the energy consumption
of subsea pipeline inspection
SPICE’s precise maneuverability combined with its unique robot arm reduces fuel consumption of the close subsea pipeline inspection to a quarter to that of conventional ROVs. (ROV: Remotely operated vehicle)
SPICE is an AUV system consisting of AUV and its docking station for the close range inspection of subsea assets, mainly subsea pipelines.
