Surveyor Interceptor ROV secures another contractVessel & ROV News // July 2, 2015
Reach Subsea has confirmed that its partner for survey operations, MMT in Sweden, has been awarded a contract for the world's longest HVDC route survey for the UK-Iceland Interconnector by Atlantic Superconnection Corporation (ASC).
MMT will provide bathymetric and geophysical mapping along the entire route corridor, between Iceland and the UK.
MMT and Reach Subsea have mobilized the high speed Surveyor Interceptor ROV (which is owned 50 per cent and operated by Reach Subsea) on Stril Explorer, the vessel that will undertake the seabed survey on the deepest part of the route.
MMT's Survey and ROV vessel Franklin will continue the survey in UK waters with a fully equipped ROTV.
The survey will take place this summer. The water depth and seabed conditions vary greatly along the route with maximum depths of approximately 1,100m.
