MMT Surveys Shetland

MMT UK, based in Banbury Oxfordshire, is currently undertaking two hydrographic surveys in the Shetland Islands on behalf of the Maritime & Coastguard Agency.

MMT has since 2006 been one of the MCA´s Civil Hydrography Programme survey providers of multi-beam bathymetry, providing hydrographic data for updating nautical charts for safe navigation and efficient maritime transport.

One survey runs from Yell to Unst and is a 45-day survey running along the coastlines. The other survey is a 90-day survey from Yell to Lerwick and is covering a large area north of Lerwick.

MMT has two vessels onsite. M/V IceBeam and M/V SeaBeam are conducting multibeam echo sounder surveys of the seabed topography within the survey area.

Martin Godfrey, MMT project manager, said: “We are very pleased to say that we have been providing MCA with high quality survey data for over 10 years now and maintain a cohesive working relationship with the MCA.”
