AML Moving Vessel Profiler for Xiamen University

Xiamen University has purchased a moving vessel profiler (MVP) from AML Oceanographic for the research vessel JIA GENG.

The university’s State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science will use the deep water underway profiling system, MVP300, to collect CTD, sound velocity, and environmental data in support of both hydrographic and ocean science applications.

The ability to collect high density data in real-time while the vessel is underway will produce higher quality results than can be achieved with static profiling systems, and in a fraction of the time, AML explains.

MVP300 profiles to 1250 meters while the vessel travels at 6 knots.

This contract was secured through AML’s local agent, Laurel Technologies Company of Hong Kong. It marks the 127th order for a moving vessel profiler, and the 18th such contract to be delivered to China. The solution to be supplied to Xiamen University includes the MVP, instrumentation, installation, and training services.
