Echoscope® was used to monitor the cable touch-down position during the cable lay process.

Coda Octopus are delighted to report successful deployment of the Echoscope® real-time 3D sonar system on the Race Bank offshore wind farm project by DeepOcean. The Echoscope® was used for a vast number of tasks including live cable touch-down monitoring and position recording, monitoring of first and second end pull-ins, cable-cut marking and survey of the as-laid inter-array cables.

Martin Austin (left) explains the Doppler principles and the operation of the Nortek Vector for measuring the suspended sediment flux in the shallow Laugharne estuarine environment.

Students from the School of Ocean Sciences at Bangor University, have a 30-year tradition of heading to the Laugharne Estuary in south Wales each summer to investigate the sediment dynamics of this energetic environment.

The Southern Ocean is key to Earth’s climate, but the same gusting winds, big waves and strong currents that are important to ocean physics make it perilous for oceanographers.
