The 28th of October all of Marin Mätteknik AB peronnel and vessels gathered at Skeppsbron in Stockholm together with 150 friends. After one year of upgrading, our new multipurpose vessel IceBeam was officially namned at a huge party in Stockholm. The vessel is equipped for geophysical and geotechnical survey assignments as well as for ROV work.
She is equipped with two Sub-Atlantic Mohican ROVs in purpose built LARS and TMS systems. This will assure launch and recovery in all weather. She is also fitted with multibeam echo sounders, side scan sonars, sub-bottom profilers as well as cranes and a-frame constructed to handle up to 10 tons with 8 meters height, making her well suited for geotechnical coring. Her fuel consumption is less than 1m³ per day on DP which makes her a green vessel indeed.
MMT yearly conference was held before the meeting where we actually met all 180 for the first time. During the conference discussions were held regarding HSEQ, new technical solutions, business strategy and labor related questions.
After the naming, all guests and colleagues enjoyed food, musical diversions and dancing.
