In response to increasing demand for plough dredging & bed levelling services independent of dedicated dredging and survey vessels, ECM have permanently installed survey-grade multi-beam sonar on our primary ploughing vessel Pacific Conquest.
The addition of multi-beam sonar now enables crew to monitor progress in real-time without the need for costly daily or bi-daily surveys.
Benefits to Clients as follows:
- Increase in overall efficiency through the elimination of “guess work”.
- Huge reduction in the number of intermediate surveys required – potential savings can easily exceed AUD$100K per month.
Multi-beam sonar and real-time seafloor mapping have wide-ranging applications.
