Saab Seaeye, which claims to be the world’s largest electric underwater vehicle manufacturer, has expanded into a second facility in Fareham, Hampshire, UK.
Saab Seaeye’s Managing Director Jon Robertson explained that the extra space would allow the company to expand its engineering team. This will enable the company to invest in new products, whilst offering bespoke engineering solutions for its customers.
The company’s existing training facility is being expanded in the new premises with enhanced training packages for customers’ operators in the operation and maintenance of Saab Seaeye’s underwater vehicles.
The expansion will also free up more space in the existing facility for larger production orders, along with greater stockholding potential so that more ‘off the shelf’ deliveries can be offered.
This expansion comes as sales grow across its various industries including oil and gas, renewable energy, defence, marine science and hydro engineering.
