Kongsberg launches system for shallow-water bathymetric applications

Kongsberg Mesotech has just introduced the M3 Bathy System, a powerful, entry-level survey system for shallow-water bathymetric applications. The core of the M3 Bathy is Mesotech's M3 Series MultiMode Multibeam Sonar. The M3 Sonar is the only instrument in its price point that produces high-quality imaging records and 3D profiling point cloud data using the same sonar head. Bathymetric multibeams have different requirements than imaging sonars. Bathymetric multibeam sonar needs a wide opening angle across track, and narrow beam along track angle. Forward-looking imaging sonar needs a wide beam across track and wide beam along track. The M3's design solves this technical challenge by using 2 sets of complementary transducers in the same head. The M3 generates both imaging and profiling data in the same head. Point it down for bathymetric measurement; point it forward with a slight downward tilt for seafloor imaging; point it forward for obstacle avoidance, point it sideways for structural inspection or vessel hull inspection. The M3 Bathy was launched at KM Singapore's Subsea User Conference June during the week of June 2-6 and according to Regional Sales Manager and event organizer Grant Rawlinson "The M3 Sonar was a star of the show and attracted a ...

New AVANTI port information software

Live testing of ‘Avanti', a new on-line web based application that provides validated nautical information for port users is due to commence at a number of European ports. Following successful prototype testing at Port of Rotterdam, the ports of Göthenburg, Marseille and Luela will commence live testing in spring 2014. Avanti has been developed by Envitia for the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) in collaboration with the International Harbour Masters' Association (IHMA) and promises to make a major contribution to the rapidly expanding field of e-Navigation. The need for easily accessible and reliable nautical port information has never been more important as all players in the industry aim to increase efficiency, reduce costs and achieve environmental benefits. By securely accessing their port's information on the Avanti website, harbour masters can speedily update port information making it instantly accessible to the marine industry and port community through a website that has been developed by an internationally respected organization. UKHO's Publications Senior Product Manager, Christine Trickett, said "Avanti is an important research and development project for the UKHO and we are pleased to have reached the stage where we can fully test the concept with industry players". IHMA's President, Captain Eric Atkinson, ...

Alfa Laval wins environmental order for marine exhaust gas cleaning systems to Finnlines

Alfa Laval has announced an order to supply Alfa Laval PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems to Finnlines Plc. The order is booked in the Marine & Offshore Systems segment and delivery is scheduled for 2014. Due to a confidentiality agreement Alfa Laval is unable to disclose the value of the order. The order includes four Alfa Laval PureSOX exhaust gas cleaning systems; it is hybrid prepared open-loop systems for four vessels to be retrofitted during end of 2014 / beginning of 2015. "This order for our scrubber technology confirms that it is an attractive and proven solution for the reduction of sulphur oxides, be it for retrofits or for installation aboard new vessels," says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. IMO's convention for the reduction of sulphur oxides (SOX) will affect all vessels, both new and existing. The convention demands that sulphur emission levels in certain Emission Control Areas (ECAs) shall be cut to 0.1 percent from the year 2015 and that the global emission level must not exceed 0.5 percent from the year 2020. To reach these levels ship owners can either use more expensive low-sulphur fuel or, on vessels where it is suitable, continue ...

Port of Duisburg selects Multibeam Echo sounder

The Port of Duisburg is located at the confluence of Rhine and Ruhr two major shipping arteries that link central European industry as well as consumers to the seaports on the North Sea coast. Occupying an area of 3350 acres including 21 basins with a total size of 450 acres, the Port of Duisburg moves more than 120 million tons of goods per year. Duisport - Duisburg Hafen AG, the owner of the public Port of Duisburg has decided to upgrade their survey capability from a previously used single beam echosounder to the wide swath bathymetry system GeoSwath Plus. The system provides full bathymetry coverage of the harbour basins with unprecedented resolution, while at the same time cutting down on survey time. The side scan data that is co-registered with the system can also be used to detect debris as well as mapping bottom types. The data provides the basis for monitoring and maintaining the most important asset of a port, its basins and shipping channels.
