New submarine to be tested in Palma
REV Ocean has unveiled its new submarine from Triton, at a naming ceremony in Barcelona. The acrylic submersible, named Aurelia is the deepest diving vessel of its type, and will now undergo sea trials in the Balearics.
These sea trials are the final stage in the build process, with classification society representatives, as well as the teams from Rev Ocean and Triton, on hand for the certification and commissioning.
The submarine, owned by the Norwegian company REV Ocean, has been assembled at the facilities of Triton Submarines, LLC in Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona) and will be dedicated to oceanic exploration.
