Boskalis orders EchoscopeCodaOctopus is delighted to announce the award of a contract from Baggermaatschappij Boskalis bv which further expands their rapidly growing Echoscope 3D real-time imaging sonar customer base. The sonar, built on patented Echoscope technology, will be used by Boskalis in their worldwide construction, dredging, engineering and coastal protection projects. It provides the capability to visualise, in zero visibility conditions, the subsea environment in 3 dimensions and to make real time measurements without the need for post-processing of data. Ultimately their investment in this unique technology will make Boskalis' projects safer and more efficient.



Identifying the 3D visualisation capabilities of the Echoscope system, Sjoerd van den Brom, Survey Manager, commented: "At Boskalis we are continually investigating new, innovative and leading-edge technologies. From our experiences at numerous worldwide projects we know that adding a further Echoscope to our global operations will enhance both safety and productivity."

Stephen Auld, CodaOctopus Products Managing Director added: "Boskalis required a technical solution that would provide them with a flexible tool which is suitable for many of their applications and projects. The Echoscope technology fulfils this requirement and the advanced software development team at CodaOctopus is working closely with Boskalis to customise the software and add further capabilities."
