UTEC, a global surveying company in the Acteon subsea services group (a UK based SJE Group investment), has completed consecutive as-built and post-construction, anchor-debris-clearance surveys using remotely operated vehicles (ROV) in the Middle East.
UTEC mobilised a DP2 offshore support vessel in early December 2019 with work- and observation-class ROVs and a nearshore survey work boat for the as-built campaign. The anchor debris clearance campaign used the same vessel with a sub-bottom profiler, a side-scan sonar, a multibeam echosounder and a magnetometer.
The success of this project demonstrates that UTEC/Acteon has the technology and the operational experience for the successful delivery of projects like these. The work demonstrates the company's ROV and conventional geophysical survey capabilities in shallow waters, from the surface to depths of 40 m.
The SJE Group congratulates Nadir Rahmatullah (Commercial Director Asia Pacific and Middle East, UTEC) and the rest of the talented team at UTEC.
