Groundbreaking autonomous and remote Hugin and Eelume robotic technologies from Kongsberg Maritime are helping one Norwegian subsea company contribute significantly to the energy transition in its oil and gas pipeline and site inspection offerings.

Argeo AS is a relatively young business set up in 2017 with a fast-moving start-up philosophy and a stated aim of transforming the ocean surveying and inspection industry by using autonomous vehicles and unique sensor and imaging technology.

The company, which has offices in Asker and Tromsø, Norway has invested in a range of Kongsberg autonomous vehicle technologies in recent months allowing it to offer a compelling resolution accuracy to its inspection clients of 2-4 cm, and do so with significant cost and emission reductions.
