Sonar Equipment Services Delivers First Multi-Sensor ROV Survey Package
- Business & Finance
Great Yarmouth-based Sonar Equipment Services has successfully delivered its first multi-sensor ROV survey package to Calecore’s marine survey division, Calesurvey.
The leading supplier of marine survey equipment to the offshore energy industry has integrated, tested and mobilised a complex array of survey and subsea equipment complete with offshore support personnel for the survey in Norwegian waters.
The pipeline route survey with environmental and geotechnical studies is being carried out using a work class ROV fitted with an extensive range of geophysical and bathymetry survey sensors and equipment supplied by Sonar Equipment Services. As part of the scope of work, an Innova Matrix MKII fibre optic multiplexer has been supplied to provide stand-alone transport of all survey data over a single fibre. The Matrix MKII is a compact, plug and play interface solution for all subsea sensors and equipment which can be fitted to any hosted platform.
Sonar Equipment Services’ dedicated engineering team carried out a full sensor integration and factory acceptance test at their facilities, ensuring that the mobilisation on the vessel went smoothly.
Neil Jackson, Sales and Operations Manager for Sonar Equipment Services, said: “This scope of work demonstrates our ability to deliver innovative technical solutions when off the shelf answers are simply not enough to meet the challenges and demands faced by our customers.
“The successful completion of this project underlines our ability to identify and source the right technology from our diverse array of survey and subsea equipment and then integrate together a highly effective, functional and fully tested package which meets the customer’s requirements.”
