MacArtney France SAS has successfully delivered a portable Multi-Beam Echo Sounder Hydrographic System – designed for small vessels – to the French government organization Collectivité de Corse, in Corsica, France.

With 1000 km of coastline, the island attracts many tourists and cruise ships creating the need for an MBES hydrographic system, but one small enough and versatile enough to be portable by road across the island to Corsica’s many harbors, said MacArtney in its release.

The purpose of the MBES Hydrographic System is to ensure visiting vessels can securely navigate the harbors of the island, monitor the seabed to control the quality of dredging, identify obstructions on the sea floor and finally verify underwater installations, for example, the quaysides and hexapods of the Corsican harbors.

As system solution specialists, MacArtney France worked with trusted partners Kongsberg, Valeport and SBG Systems on this project to fulfill the project specific needs and supply an adaptable MBES Hydrographic System that meets the standards set down by the International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO).
