Marine survey company EGS has added to its survey vessel fleet with the addition of the coastal vessel EGS Echo. Echo will service contracts in the UK and northern Europe
Echo is a 15-m purpose-built aluminium hulled catamaran, incorporating a deck crane, davits, side mounts and a moonpool with a retractable transducer mount to maximise capabilities.
The vessel provides a stable work platform and propulsion has been designed to provide both high speeds for transits and low speeds for survey work.
The vessel is fitted with a suite of survey equipment enabling the vessel to perform geophysical surveys and met ocean studies. The survey spread is permanently installed but the moonpool and mountings have been designed to accept a range of transducers, allowing all technical specifications to be met.
EGS recently purchased a Norbit multibeam sonar system to complement its Kongsberg and Reson multibeam echosounder systems, which it uses for coastal activities.
EGS Echo will be undertaking its first O&M windfarm survey in the Irish Sea in the next month.
EGS managing director Debbie Jenkins said, “We are very excited to be able to offer our clients a vessel with the capabilities of Echo. It is an excellent survey platform and joins our fleet at a busy time for us in northern Europe and in the US market.”
