NauticusNauticus Robotics Inc., a developer of autonomous robots for intervention services, has announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with MMA Offshore Limited, a global provider of high-specification vessels and subsea services, for the development of an integrated service offering to provide more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly maintenance to subsea infrastructures in the Asia-Pacific region.

Nauticus’ autonomous subsea robots, Aquanauts, enable the use of smaller service vessels not previously utilised for inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) work, which MMA owns and operates. By combining their capabilities, the two companies hope to offer a more economical solution to subsea intervention.

Nicolaus Radford, Founder and CEO of Nauticus, said, “This MoU is just one in a series of strategic moves we are making to disrupt autonomous subsea robotics and solidify our place as the industry leader in the field. Aligning with an established industry player, such as MMA Offshore, in multiple offshore markets provides a significant opportunity for Nauticus to continue expanding its reach and international customer base.”

Tom Radic, Executive General Manager Subsea at MMA Offshore, commented, “MMA is excited to have entered into this exclusive partnership with Nauticus Robotics and looks forward to being able to integrate its leading autonomous robotic and AI software technology into its subsea services. This partnership will ensure our clients have access to the latest autonomous and machine learning technology to help meet their subsea requirements.”
