MMT Group Opts for Kongsberg EM2040 Dual Head System

The system has recently been installed on MMT’s long term charted multipurpose support vessel Stril Explorer.

This is a highly developed multibeam echo sounder that combines all of the advanced features of deepwater echo sounders to the shallower water or ROV/AUV environment.

Such features include:

  • Dual swath per ping to maintain a high survey speed at maintained resolution.
  • FM chirp to achieve a much longer range capability
  • Complete roll, pitch and yaw stabilization
  • Near-field focusing both when transmitting and receiving

By owning and operating an EM2040 dual head on Stril Explorer, MMT is further prepared to perform surveys that meet the IHO-S44 special order and fulfills the requirement for high resolution pipeline inspection.

This investment has advanced MMT’s surveying operations and it supports MMT Group’s standing as a unique and highly advanced competitor in the marine surveying field.
