Ashtead Technology Partners with Oceanscience Group - 03/05/2012

Ashtead Technology – Offshore Division, UK, has entered into an exclusive agreement with The Oceanscience Group to offer the UnderwayCTD and UnderwaySV systems for the rental market. For the first time, the profiler is available for short or long-term hire with systems supplied out of Ashtead Technology’s three regional bases: Houston (USA), Aberdeen (UK) and Singapore. This agreement is exclusive within the oil and gas industry.


The UnderwayCTD/SV is a free-fall profiling system that offers research quality conductivity, temperature, depth (CTD) or sound velocity (SV) profiles from a vessel moving at up to 14kts. Profiles over 1000m are achievable at 4-5kts and with a turnaround time of about 30 minutes for a full depth cast.

For hydrographic survey projects the simple installation process and minimal infrastructure requirements make the UnderwayCTD/SV an attractive profiling system.
