In the past year, Marin Mätteknik AB has purchased three new EM3002 dual head multibeam systems. The first Kongsberg multibeam was installed on one of MMT AB's vessels back in the mid-nineties and MMT AB has since then operated different Kongsberg multibeam systems at various locations worldwide. The latest purchase brings a total of eight modern Kongsberg multibeam systems installed on MMT AB's fleet of survey vessels and ROVs.
One of the new systems has been permanently hull-mounted on MMT AB's latest vessel acquisition, IceBeam, which was launched under a Swedish flag earlier this summer. IceBeam is a specially developed ROV and survey vessel for high-resolution charting in shallow-to-medium waters.
A new EM3002D deepwater system has also been purchased for installation on one of MMT AB's ROVs. The combination will allow detailed ROV mapping and inspections down to 1500 metres water depth with both EM3002D survey and pipe inspection modes. MMT AB is at present considerably expanding its ROV capacity with new equipment and personnel.
MMT AB works worldwide on seabed mapping projects, with a strong focus on the European market. Seabed survey operations are conducted for the offshore industry as well as for governments and institutions. Typical tasks are hydrographic charting projects and route surveys for cables and pipelines. Geophysical site surveys are performed for various offshore infrastructures and for wreck and munitions charting. The company also specialises in environmental mapping projects which are performed in coastal areas as well as offshore in deep waters.
MMT AB operates five fully equipped survey vessels and has full capacity for geophysical and ROV surveys down to 2000 metres.
