MMT installs a Kongsberg EM2040 dual head on Stril Explorer
MMT Group is proud to announce its new ownership of a Kongsberg EM2040D. A 0.4 x 0.7 degree dual head multibeam system has recently been installed on MMT’s long term charted multipurpose support vessel Stril Explorer.
This is a highly developed multibeam echo sounder that combines all of the advanced features of deepwater echo sounders to the shallower water or ROV/AUV environment. Such features include:
· Dual swath per ping to maintain a high survey speed at maintained resolution.
· FM chirp to achieve a much longer range capability
· Complete roll, pitch and yaw stabilization
· Near-field focusing both when transmitting and receiving
By owning and operating an EM 2040 dual head on Stril Explorer, MMT is further prepared to perform surveys that meet the IHO-S44 special order and fulfills the requirement for high resolution pipeline inspection. This investment has advanced MMT’s surveying operations and it supports MMT Group’s standing as a unique and highly advanced competitor in the marine surveying field.
