We utilise a range of hydrographic surveying technologies to conduct seabed mapping, covering various areas from the coastline to hazardous shallow water and deeper ocean depths.
Maintaining a clear focus on your objectives, we tap into our extensive resources and expertise to bring you a superior service that sticks to your schedule. Our modern fleet of advanced vessels offers flexibility and force-multiplication, playing a vital role in delivering high-quality results.
Up to 7 tonnes of CO2 are saved for every survey vessel day replaced with an USV.
By utilising USVs, we remove personnel from hazardous offshore environments.
A more cost-effective, efficient and portable solution, delivering instant results.
Whether you are planning a new offshore wind farm development or monitoring existing infrastructure, understanding bathymetry is a vital task. Failure to track seabed morphology can lead to over-budgeting of infrastructure requirements, or increased costs from remediating defects due to unsuitable foundations or poorly designed cable routes.
We perform seabed mapping from nearshore and hazardous shallow water to deep water environments, using a range of hydrographic surveying methodologies including multibeam bathymetry, side scan sonar, sub-bottom profiler, 2D-UHR and magnetometry surveys.
Supporting your offshore wind development activities, we deliver geophysical survey solutions at all water depths, minimising project risk, improving safety and facilitating the route and project design for offshore developers. Operated by our highly experienced team of hydrographic surveyors, our innovative solutions are tailored to meet your quality, sustainability, schedule, and cost requirements. Supporting site consenting, pre-construction and cable route surveys, our survey solutions accelerate the acquisition of industry-leading hydrographic data.
The C-Worker 5 is an autonomous vehicle designed to support hydrographic survey work and to increase survey coverage in limited timeframes. A proven offshore survey “force-multiplier”, the vehicle will operate from the Glomar Supporter mothership, in supervised autonomy mode.
Our specialist skills and knowhow have been hard-earned through challenging projects in the harshest environments. This has deepened our understanding of what technology is truly capable of, enabling us to deliver exceptional insights with speed and efficiency.
