UTEC in pipeline survey off NW Australia
UTEC operated vessel “Yardie Creek” is nearing completion of major AUV pipeline survey campaign off the NW coast of Australia.
The vessel is equipped with subsea positioning and 2 x 1000 metre rated AUVs fitted with multibeam, side-scan sonar, sub-bottom profiler and magnetometer.
The spread will be available fully mobilised on the North West Shelf in mid-July.
UTEC Survey announced in May that it had doubled its AUV fleet to four autonomous underwater vehicles due to a global upturn in demand for AUV services. The company now operates a fleet of four identically equipped 1000m-rated AUV systems.
