ICTINEU 3 submersible

Research submersible ICTINEU 3 The ICTINEU 3 is a new generation manned submersible, with a powerful state-of-the-art battery package that can drive up to 20 miles underwater. This exceptional range is achieved through exacting hydrodynamics and vehicle efficiency making ICTINEU 3 a safe and excellent tool for underwater exploration, scientific research and underwater intervention. The ICTINEU 3 submersible is a 3-person vehicle rated to 1200m and it is among the top 10 deepest (active) submersibles in the world. It offers an unobstructed view of the seabed thanks to a big acrylic window 1.5m in diameter. ICTINEU 3 will be launched under GL A5 classification. Innovation The ICTINEU 3 incorporates several innovations that make it a cutting-edge new tool for underwater observation and work:

  • Innovation in stainless-steel materials for an insuperable volume / weigh ratio and low maintenance
  • Composites are used as structural material, including last generation and fire-proof materials
  • First certified lithium-polymer battery system for high power and high-energy capacity
  • Huge acrylic dome to withstand depths under 1000m
  • Improvements in ergonomics and design in work class submersibles
