Subsea Docking Station
Kawasaki has experiences regarding development of Subsea Docking Station which can allow deep-sea recharging and high speed communication to extend deployment of AUVs in subsea.
Subsea Docking Station has non-contact recharging system and high speed communication system. And, Kawasaki has two types of Subsea Docking Station, towing type, and subsea installation type.
In combination with AUV, reduction of launch and recovery operation and long-time duration in subsea leads to reduction of operating cost, and mitigation of HSE risk during subsea operation.
