UK: Tyne and Wear Marine Conducts Survey with Tritech’s StarFish

Subsea UK reports that Tyne and Wear Marine (TWM) Ltd., a marine and engineering company, used Tritech’s StarFish 990F for the dock wall survey on the Tyne River, Newcastle.

The technology was used during port survey and inspection project, and has the latest in advanced CHIRP (Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse) acoustic technology and digital-signal-processing techniques.

StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems enabled the operators at TWM to make images with greater clarity. The operators were then able to overlay the data onto a photographic image of the dock walls.

John Cramman, Tyne and Wear Marine, states: “We are extremely pleased with the results that we have achieved with the StarFish 990F. Its compact size facilitates easy mounting to our vessels, allowing us to carry out vertical scanning of quay walls and other port and marine structures. As a survey tool, it enables us to collect a vast amount of information in a relatively short time frame. It has proven invaluablefor pre-dive and ROV exercises, literally giving both the client and our team a picture of underwater structures and assets.”
