Next Geosolutions, the international geoscience and offshore engineering support service contractor, has recently been awarded three marine survey contracts by three different clients to be accomplished in direct continuation in the Mediterranean Sea.

The projects will involve a full range of marine survey disciplines including onshore, nearshore and offshore activities, most of which will be undertaken using ROV-mounted sensors and tools.

The first project involved multidisciplinary survey tasks in support of a deepwater survey pipeline project, involving geophysical, environmental, archaeological and UXO (unexploded ordnance) survey and relocation activities.

The remaining missions are submarine cable route surveys, providing topographical, geophysical, geotechnical and UXO survey activities in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. This will involve the use of hull-mounted, towed and ROV-based equipment.

All three projects have or will be primarily undertaken from the group-owned high-spec DP2 multipurpose vessel Ievoli Cobalt, which is permanently fitted with a state-of-the-art hangar-sheltered ultra-heavy duty Schilling ROV system skilfully operated by long-standing partner company ROVOP Ltd. Onshore teams and nearshore spreads will complement local operations. The three projects will keep this spread fully-occupied for the summer and autumn seasons.
