 18 Mar 2016     Port Planning

Van Oord Dredging and Marine Contractors, a leading contractor for dredging, marine engineering and offshore energy projects, has selected Valeport’s SWiFT SVP for its various survey activities.

The SWiFT SVP is designed to ensure a seamless workflow and has an integral GPS to geo-locate every profile. 

Suited for coastal, harbour and inland hydrographic survey use, Van Oord is to deploy the SWiFT SVP as part of its operations worldwide.

Data from the SWiFT SVP can be easily and quickly downloaded, reviewed and translated to common SVP formats wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart, which uses the SWiFT APP on iOS devices where data can be instantly shared via FTP, email and cloud services. 

Wim Balvert, Survey Workshop Manager for Van Oord, said: “We bought the SWiFT SVPs from Valeport because they are a successful and experienced sensor manufacturer, producing reliable field-proven underwater sensors, backed up by world class technology and service. 

“Our initial investment in these SWiFT SVPs strengthens our commitment to investing in high-performance technology and will provide the highest levels of accuracy in our operations.”
