Teledyne Marine announced today that Trimble will distribute a branded version of Teledyne’s PDS software package for hydrographic survey, construction and dredging operations.
The announcement was made at ConExpo 2017, one of the world’s largest international exhibitions for the construction industry.
Construction applications for the Trimble Marine Construction Software include dredging, cable lay applications, monopile placements, building breakwaters, windmill parks, pipe lay monitoring, rock dumping, excavating, barge management and more.
Dredge applications for the software support hydraulic excavators, wire cranes, bucket dredgers, underwater ploughs, trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHD) and cutter suction dredgers.
The software provides real-time visualization of the dredge head or excavator bucket essential for precise operations to avoid over-dredge or rework.
Hydrographic applications for the software include measuring the seafloor or riverbeds for hazardous areas, dredge progress tracking, revetment surveys, maintenance surveys and safe navigation.
The software is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2017 through Trimble’s Marine Construction Dealer Channel.
