Peel Ports invests in Norbit Technology

26 November 2019

Norbit recently supplied an iWBMSh integrated multibeam survey system to the Peel Ports Group.

This latest generation sonar technology is providing survey capability both to their Mersey-based survey vessel Royal Charter plus their soon-to-be-delivered L3Harris autonomous surface vehicle.

The Norbit iWBMSh, now commissioned on the Royal Charter, has replaced the vessel's previously installed multibeam system.

With the vessel now delivering high quality bathymetric and backscatter hydrographic data, Peel Ports have also installed a Norbit iLiDAR laser scanner to provide further survey capability in their often-interesting and challenging survey environment.

"Peel Ports are expert hydrographic surveyors, who have evaluated technology and identified ambitious operational challenges for their current and future survey scopes," said John Fraser, NORBIT. "We are delighted to supply our iWBMSh systems, plus support, to their professional survey operations. Through the recent commissioning process, Peel Ports demonstrated the expected and exacting high standards for all their deliverables."
