Hamburg Port Authority adds a dual head multibeam survey system to its range of hydrographic survey equipment

Conducting around 900 surveys per year in the port of Hamburg, Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) requires high-end products for their multi-sensor systems and survey vessels.

The vessel ‘Deepenschriewer IV’ is the smallest survey vessel of HPA and intended to carry out multibeam surveys for depth control and documenting in shallow water areas. For this purpose, MBT, MacArtney Germany, has done supply, installation, and setting-to-work of a dual head multibeam echo sounder system suitable for hydrographic survey applications.

This solution includes the following products: high-resolution multibeam echo sounder Teledyne RESON SeaBat® T20-R, a Valeport SWiFT soundtrace profiler and a Valeport UltraSV.

Scope of supply
The dual head Teledyne RESON SeaBat® T20-R multibeam echo sounder configuration provides uncompro-mising survey data in a highly compact package designed for small vessel use. It is an all-in-one, fully flexible and fully integrated survey system for fast mobilization, minimal interfacing and low space requirements.

The Valeport SWiFT is a high-performance, low-cost and high-speed. The Valeport UltraSV offers ultra-fast, ultra-compact and ultra-dependable. The scope of the invention relates to a method and apparatus for the determination of the temperature.

Quality testing to meet the most demanding standards and the best way to achieve the best results.

The units are intended for coastal, harbour and inland hydrographic survey use. Featuring superior acoustic quality and high accuracy, this dual head survey system enables easy and quick downloading and sharing of data relevant in relation to hydrographic surveying.
