Marine GeoSolutions (MGS), a Perth-based specialist marine geophysical & hydrographic survey company, has completed an offshore marine survey in support of Carnegie Wave Energy’s CETO 6 Yirra Wave Energy project.
The project involved the acquisition of hydrographic and geophysical survey data at the proposed installation sites of the wave energy array offshore of Garden Island (Western Australia), as well as along a proposed cable route that will connect the array to the shore.
For this project, MGS utilized a multibeam echosounder, inertial navigation system, side-scan sonar, magnetometer and three different sub-bottom profiling systems.
Following the project award, Dr Peter Ramsay, one of the company directors, said: “We are particularly pleased with being awarded this contract as it demonstrates the company’s ability to win key projects issued by means of a competitive bidding process in the face of stiff competition from our competitors. We believe that this contract will enable further market penetration and serve to grow our company’s reputation”.
Warwick Miller, the other company director, added: “We are extremely proud to be associated with Carnegie Wave Energy Limited and to be able to contribute on such a significant renewable energy project. Our company is also very pleased to be working closely with RPS Energy who were appointed as the client representatives for the duration of the project.”
