Assets 

An extensive range of fully mobilised vessels and equipment

We operate a fleet of eight survey vessels permanently mobilised with high resolution bathymetry systems and inertial navigation systems suitable for inshore, coastal and offshore survey projects. All vessels can be mobilised with additional geophysical, oceanographic or ecological survey equipment. Other equipment can also be deployed from these vessels or from suitable charter vessels.

Our equipment pool includes high-resolution cameras and drop-down video systems as well as a range of oceanographic and water quality monitoring sensors.

Equipment

 

Drop-Down Video System

Drop-down video system
Brand C-Technics CT3023 SLV
Location System is portable; can be deployed from any suitable vessel.

Mounted onto a purpose-built sled, the C-Technics CT3023 SLV system can record high-definition video whilst taking full resolution still images.

With in-built lasers set at 100 mm apart (for scaling), LED lighting (providing improved definition and colour) and adjustable tilt mounts, the system is ideally suited for all ecological and inspection requirements.

 

 

AWAC and AquaDopp systems

AWACs
Brand Nortek AWAC / Aquadopp
Location Systems are portable; can be deployed from any suitable vessel.

Our Nortek AWAC (Acoustic Wave and Current) and AquaDopp instruments are available to monitor the current and wave climate at the required deployment location. The instruments are mobilised on purpose-built frames with acoustic tilt sensors to ensure upright deployment.

 

 

Vessel-mounted ADCP Systems

Vessel-mounted ADCP
Brand Teledyne RDI
Location System is portable; can be deployed from any suitable vessel.

Our Teledyne RDI ADCP system is vessel-mounted to monitor current flow speed and direction down through the water column. Mobile monitoring transects are run across channels and areas of interest to the project, rather than at a single location.

 

Additional equipment

 
  • Multiple water quality sensors to observe temperature, salinity, tubidity and dissolved oxygen content
  • Niskin bottle water samplers
  • Day Grab
  • Van Veen Grab sampler
  • RTK topographic instruments
