Reach Remote - disruptive subsea services for ocean industries

This presentation will discuss an innovative concept for USVs carrying ROVs, both controlled from remote operations centers. Reach Remote is a sustainable, safe and highly cost-competitive solution for subsea services, providing more than 90% reductions in CO2 and NOx emissions, eliminating personnel risk associated with offshore operations and yielding a 65% reduction in the cost of providing subsea services. The solution has been collectively developed by a strong partnership: Reach Subsea, Kongsberg Maritime, Wilhelmsen and Massterly, and will serve the oil and gas and offshore wind sectors, and emerging sectors like deep-sea mining, CCS and offshore fish farms.
