Eelume AS

Eelume was established in 2015 as a spin-off from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). After a decade of research on snake robots in collaboration with the research organization SINTEF, we decided to pursue industrial subsea applications of these amazing mechanisms. The strategic partnership formed with Kongsberg Maritime and Statoil (LOOP product development program) in 2016 ensures that our unique vehicle concept is fused with leading subsea experience and technology. In addition, the support from the Research Council of Norway and Innovation Norway has been vital to our success. We are immensely proud of our technology and progress, but our creative and highly motivated team is only at the beginning of its mission to reshape underwater operations.

Products and Services

Eelume vehicles are modular combinations of joints, thrusters and various payload modules. The slender body allows for precision hovering and maneuvering even in strong ocean currents. Sensors and tools can be mounted anywhere along the flexible body. A dual-arm configuration is achieved by mounting tooling in each end and forming the vehicle body into a U-shape. One end of the arm can grab hold to fixate the vehicle, while the other end can carry out inspection and intervention tasks. One end of the arm can also provide a perspective camera view of a tool operation carried out at the other end. All these flexible operational scenarios are made possible by the unique shape-changing capabilities of the Eelume vehicles.
