Rovco Hydrographic Survey Hero

Hydrographic survey

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.

Leading the way with remote hydrography

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.

Lower Emission
Lower emmissions

Up to 7 tonnes of CO2 are saved for every survey vessel day replaced with an USV.

Reduced Hse
Reduced HSE exposure

By utilising USVs, we remove personnel from hazardous offshore environments.

Accelerate the acquisition of superior hydrographic data

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.
