MMT in German Waters17/09/2012
|MMT (Sweden) has recently completed a geophysical cable route survey for the Amrumbank West offshore wind farm (OWF) project for Siem Offshore Contractors, Germany. The geophysical survey was performed by MMT for the entire inner array grid cable route. The geophysical survey included bathymetric and side-scan sonar survey as well as sub-bottom profiling.|
At first a magnetometer was piggy-tailed behind the towed instruments from the MMT survey vessel IceBeam for detection of unexploded ordnance (UXO). Based on the results of this magnetic anomalies survey, an ROV equipped with a gradiometer array was then used for additional target inspections. The overall length of the geophysical survey was 550km within the OWF area of 36 km². Furthermore geotechnical site investigations have been performed to verify the findings of the geophysical survey, whereby CPT tests were undertaken.
The OWF is situated within the German Bight sector of the North Sea, north of the island of Heligoland and west of the island of Amrum. The OWF will consist of 80 wind turbine generators and shall be interconnected by an inner array grid of medium voltage (MVAC) cables with a total length of up to 86km.

Demo of RIEGL Airborne Bathy Scanner in Camcopter UAV
It's not an AUV but an UAV. So an unmanned vehicle, but in the air instead of underwater. This movie shows a demonstration of the bathymetric laser scanning capabilities of the RIEGL VQ-820-GU hydrographic airborne sensor in reality. For more information on the technical side, please see the news release on Hydro International.
