New Survey System for HPA

Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) has taken delivery of the 3rd integrated dual head multibeam survey system from MacArtney.

Conducting around 900 surveys per year in the port of Hamburg, 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 effected supply, installation, and setting-to-work of a dual head multibeam echo sounder system suitable for hydrographic survey applications.

The solution comprises the following products: high-resolution multibeam echo sounder Teledyne RESON SeaBat® T20-R, a Valeport SWiFT sound velocity profiler, and a Valeport UltraSV.

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

Quality testing to meet the most demanding standards ensures optimum performance, thus allowing for good swaths in very shallow water as well as comprehensive surveys in big areas in a short time, specially in shallow areas, and thorough testing during dredging operations.
