The joint research project "MUM - Large Modifiable Underwater Mothership" targets the development of a highly modular, unmanned underwater vehicle, which allows a mission dependent module assembly to fulfill a wide spectrum of underwater tasks. The paper presents a case study for the deployment and recovery of ocean bottom nodes (OBN) for seismic surveys. Therefore, a specific vehicle configuration and its functionality is introduced. The advantages of MUM are presented in terms of its cost efficiency and non-monetary benefits, as crew safety, carbon footprint and others. In addition, business aspects for potential customers are discussed.
