Noortruck is a 53m offshore survey vessel on long-term charter to A-2-Sea Solutions from Bitunamel Feldmann GmbH.
At 53m LOA, the Noortruck offers a large, stable working platform for a variety of survey tasks, including hydrographic and geophysical campaigns, geotechnical and environmental investigations, and ROV inspection surveys.
Mobilised with the latest industry-leading survey technology
Noortruck is mobilised with a high-specification survey spread including a Kongsberg EM2040-04, dual-head, dual-swath multibeam echosounder. Capable of acquiring IHO Special Order standard data at survey speeds up to 10 knots, the Kongsberg EM2040-04 Dual RX is a high-resolution, high-density system offering a selectable frequency range of 200kHz to 400kHz and up to 1600 soundings per ping.
The system is integrated with an Applanix POSMV OceanMaster GNSS-aided inertial navigation system. QPS QINSy is utilised as the hydrographic survey management system which combines the GNSS navigation solution with geophysical survey equipment to geo-reference the survey data acquired.
Providing a large working back deck, the vessel is capable of geophysical, geotechnical and ROV campaigns.
