Ashtead Receives Investment for Latest Survey Sensors from Teledyne Marine - 11/02/2019


Teledyne Marine has announced a significant investment by Ashtead Technology in the newest subsea multibeam imaging, survey and pipe tracking technology. Key items include RESON SeaBat T50-S IDH multibeam systems (successor to the 7125 ROV2), BlueView M900-2250 dual frequency imaging sonars and HydroPACT 660E pipe and cable trackers among other items purchased from Teledyne Marine.

“As owners of the largest fleet of TSS pipe and cable trackers in the rental market, Ashtead are impressed with the new miniaturized single pod ‘660E’ version with its reduced weight, size and power,” said Brett Lestrange, Ashtead’s regional director for Europe. “The system is an ideal fit for users looking to employ smaller inspection class vehicles in place of larger work class ones which would normally be required to run such a pipe, cable or UXO survey,"

"For this reason, we are delighted to have taken delivery of the first two units giving immediate access to our clients and it is great to see them both going straight out to work. Our recent order also increased the number of other key rental fleet items such as BlueView and RDI units and we are particularly pleased to add the latest RESON SeaBat T50-S IDH dual head subsea multibeam sonars. Known for clean, accurate data and ease of operation thanks to an enhanced autopilot, the new SeaBat T Series units will come fully loaded with all optional features such as FlexMode and MultiDetect allowing our customers to optimize their surveys and get the most out of their subsea multibeam data,” Lestrange added.

“We truly appreciate Ashtead’s ongoing partnership with Teledyne to make the latest technology readily accessible to the subsea market,” said Ed Cheesman, senior manager – sales & BD at Teledyne Marine.  “2018 often saw a shortage of certain survey assets among asset pools so it is good to see Ashtead investing heavily to add capacity to their large existing fleet in support of Teledyne’s loyal end users,” he added.
