UTEC demonstrates Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) ready for launch in Perth, Australia


The AUV being showcased was the GAVIA which delivers cost savings and versatility, operating in water depths from 1m to 200m and is capable of:

  • Reconnaissance surveys
  • Route surveys for cable and pipeline pre-engineering
  • Debris surveys
  • Site surveys
  • Pipeline / Platform inspection surveys
  • Scour surveys

UTEC has extensive experience and knowledge operating the GAVIA AUV, being the largest commercial operator with several units available for deployment in Australia from our local base, supported by dedicated AUV field staff and data processing teams.

The system’s compact size and weight make it ideal for low-logistic deployments from vessels of opportunity and can be used to replace more expensive ROV survey vessel spreads, resulting in reduced project costs.
