20 March 2018 New multi beam sonar system installed on research vessel R/V SANNA

One of our naval architects has just returned from Greenland after overseeing the installation of a new multi beam sonar system on research vessel R/V SANNA. 

OSK-ShipTech has participated with the design of an extension of the existing sonar dome.
It now contains a SeaBat T50-R Extended Range high-resolution multi beam sonar from Teledyne Marine.

R/V SANNA is operated by The Greenland Climate Research Centre part of Greenland Institute of Natural Resources. The researchers on board are collecting valuable data about Greenland’s marine resources and environment off the West Greenland coast. With the newly installed sonar system, they are now able to clearly map the seabed topography up to 800 metres deep in the waters off the Greenland shelf.
