Bibby HydroMap Expands Asset Inspection Services

Bibby HydroMap has expanded its asset inspection survey technology with the purchase of the Carlson Software Merlin LiDAR mapping system.

The Merlin LiDAR system will complement the existing marine and terrestrial survey equipment to deliver improved high-resolution datasets of objects of interest, with the aim of enhancing the validity of asset inspection services, the company explained.

The new system is a vessel-based 3D mobile marine laser scanner system, designed to integrate with existing hydrographic equipment, therefore allowing simultaneous data acquisition above and below the waterline.

Bibby HydroMap’s inshore vessel Eagle is currently equipped with the new system and can be rapidly mobilized with all other asset inspection equipment to reduce deployment timescales, the company noted.

“The Merlin LiDAR system is the specialist’s tool for marine based LiDAR data acquisition. It’s simple, robust, marinized design affords quick, repeatable mobilizations along with the confidence that the equipment can handle the environmental conditions expected from European coastlines. Coupled with its use of industry leading sensor components and its compatibility with standard hydrographic acquisition packages, the Merlin LiDAR allows Bibby HydroMap to offer a high quality turnkey ‘above-surface’ solution to our clients, and complements our existing offerings of traditional bathymetric, geophysical, geotechnical and sub-surface scanning products,” said Nick Bowley, senior surveyor at Bibby HydroMap.
