Survey and positioning services specialist iSURVEY said it has invested more than £40,000 in staff training.
iSURVEY staff were educated in rapid and accurate acquisition and processing of seabed survey data.
During February and March, the staff gained a deeper understanding and awareness of the key elements of multi-beam echo sounder (MBES) acquisition and data management. Training was carried out through a combination of instructor-led classroom, workshop and offshore practical exercises.
The offshore data acquisition element was undertaken from Aberdeen Harbour using an inshore vessel to perform seabed surveys in Nigg Bay. Classroom and workshop training was completed at iSURVEY’s Aberdeenshire base in Banchory.
iSURVEY managing director, Andrew McMurtrie, said: “We are seeing strong demand for rapid high-quality data delivery, particularly across our renewables focussed client base. To meet the need for efficient acquisition, coupled with timely and accurate presentation of processed data, we recognised that by providing additional training, our staff are better placed to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.”
