About Valeport Limited

Valeport is the UK’s leading manufacturer of Hydrographic and Oceanographic instrumentation which includes Sound Velocity Probes / Sensors, Altimeters, Radar Level Sensors, Current Meters, Tide Gauges, Fluorometers, Wave Recorders, CTDs, Multi-Parameter CTD and GPS Echo Sounders.

Supporting Hydrographic surveys with the latest in technology is always our prime aim and our latest SVP, the SWiFT, does not disappoint. Designed from the outset with the intention of a seamless workflow, the SWIFT SVP has integral GPS to geo-locate every profile. This new compact and robust unit features high accuracy Sound Velocity, Pressure, Temperature, Salinity & Density measurement, plus integral GPS, re-chargeable battery and LED status indications for GPS, battery and communications. A ’twist and go’ action ensures data can be easily and quickly downloaded, reviewed and translated to common SVP formats wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart using the SWIFT APP on iOS devices where data can be instantly shared via FTP, email and cloud services. Valeport’s DataLogX2 software is supplied for those wishing to use a PC. Users of third party survey software from Hypack and QPS will also benefit from direct communication with the probe.

Valeport’s work with MBES manufacturers and OEMs has allowed interesting interfaces of SV sensors and Valeport’s new ultraSV is designed for simple integration and easy exchange where required for both shallow and deep water transducer applications.


COVID-19 Update 

We would like to keep all our customers, agents and suppliers updated on the steps that Valeport is taking during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The situation is rapidly changing and we are following government advice to best protect both our staff and the Valeport business.

We would like to reassure everyone that Valeport is operating and contactable via phone and email. 

All members of our team who have the capability to work from home are doing so and we will continue to offer the same services either from home or the office. Our manufacturing base in Totnes is operating, we have rearranged face to face meetings with phone or Skype meetings.  For those members of staff who are working from our premises, they are advised to continue to follow the advice and instructions about handwashing and cleaning communal surfaces and our main focus is to ensure the maximum separation between colleagues to minimise the chances of spreading the virus. We have put in place procedures to facilitate this.

This is a unique environment and we will adjust our approach in line with government advice and work together to continue to deliver to customers and keep our Valeport team as safe as possible.
