    Nauticus Robotics and Shell Collaborate on Subsea Inspection Services in the Gulf of Mexico

    Nauticus Robotics and Shell have signed a service contract to provide inspection services for a Shell subsea field development in the Gulf of Mexico. The collaboration will be focused on conducting inspections on the subsea field, with potential for future inspection service projects. Nauticus Robotics’ autonomous subsea robot, Aquanaut, will serve as the primary workforce for this venture. Aquanaut is capable of carrying out both noncontact and contact inspections across a complex subsea environment without the need for an umbilical connection.

    To ensure the safety of operations, a remote pilot will collaborate with Aquanaut using Nauticus’ cutting-edge acoustic communications link. While the financial details of the contract remain undisclosed, both Nauticus Robotics and Shell are committed to the success of the partnership and the efficient execution of their inspection services.
