Gardline has purchased an EM 710 multibeam system for the survey vessel Vigilant. This system is a 1 x 1 degree version with full FM pulse and dual swath capability.
Gardline has purchased its third medium depth EM 710 multibeam system for its
latest Survey Vessel Vigilant. This latest system is a 1 x 1 degree version with
full FM pulse and dual swath capability and is to be commissioned on Gardline's
latest survey vessel the Vigilant, a former fisheries patrol vessel.
Gardline is a leading geophysical, geotechnical, hydrographic and environmental
survey specialist, operating a fleet of dedicated multi role survey vessels and
coastal survey vessels permanently mobilised with fully integrated equipment packages,
which can be readily deployed and can easily accommodate additional specialised
equipment as each survey dictates.
This purchase brings a total of 16 Kongsberg multibeam systems permanently installed
on Gardline's fleet of survey vessels, providing clients with a full multibeam survey
capability in any depth from a few metres to full ocean depth.
The latest EM 710 installation on the Vigilant will have a depth capability down
to approx 2,000m utilising the FM pulse, and the system will provide a high data
density output from the dual swath function. Initial trials on the survey vessel
Tridens 1, have shown promising results so far, with a doubling of the data density
delivered from the single swath EM 710 system.
Vigilant, with its enhanced survey speed capability is expected to enter service
in third quarter 2008. For further details contact firstname.lastname@example.org
