Peru’s largest fishing company first to order flexible new Sounder USV from KONGSBERG
Unveiled at Ocean Business this week, Kongsberg Maritime has already signed a contract for delivery of a state-of-the-art Sounder USV System, for TASA, the largest fishing company in Peru. Suitably equipped for deployment in fishery applications, KONGSBERG’s new multipurpose USV system will become a crucial resource in TASA’s plans to overhaul and optimise operations throughout its 48-vessel fleet, the company said in its release.
The fully integrated and calibrated USV solution offers a high definition fishery sonar combined with a wideband echosounder from Simrad, operable from a laptop PC or radio control with data telemetry for remote operations.
The Sounder USV provides TASA with an unmanned platform for conducting fish searches and highly-detailed research, and will help the company to meet its goal of becoming a world-leading company in the sphere of sustainable fishery. Following the initial delivery, KONGSBERG and TASA will continue to collaborate in the operation of USVs for fishery applications.
