The HUGIN AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) started as a dual civil and military application strategy, developed jointly by Statoil, Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) and Kongsberg.

Hugin can be configured with a variety of different sensors and can operate down to 6000 meters below sea level. Typical applications are within oil & gas, research, environmental monitoring and defence and includes inspection, mapping, monitoring and data acquisition.

HUGIN is equipped with pressure tolerant lithium polymer batteries that are assembled, moulded and tested by Hans H. Schive.

“Kongsberg Maritime considers the Hugin battery to be a critical component, both from a safety point of view, and the importance to ensure the optimal quality that guarantees long-term and stable operations in every sortie, operating all the way down to 6000 meters depth. We are totally dependent on suppliers having full control in all processes from incoming inspection to complete assembled and tested battery.

We have been working together with Hans H. Schive since 2007, and they have fulfilled all our strict requirements to quality, documentation, traceability and communication.”
