Last month, Saab Seaeye Ltd made the short trip from Fareham to come test one of their underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) in the Boldrewood towing tank. Their team spent 8 days in the tank testing the performance and tuning this impressive piece of kit. Various tests were performed, from flight tuning, speed tests and thrust measurements.

Andrew Withers, project manager, said: “Saab Seaeye found the test tank facility ideal for testing small and mid-sized observation ROV’s. Facility access was easy, enabling quick on site setup of equipment.”
