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.
