Kongsberg Geoacoustics informs it has delivered its 200th Geoswath Plus on Kongsberg Maritime’s 200th anniversary.

Nick Burchill, Subsea Sales Manager for Kongsberg Maritime in Canada presented a plaque to Denis D'Amours, Director of the Canadian Hydrographic Service's Pacific Region, which uses the equipment, in honour of the occasion.

The Canadian Hydrographic Service uses its GeoSwath Plus systems for shallow water mapping when a high rate of coverage is required. According to Ken Halcro, Hydrographer In Charge, The GeoSwath Plus is part of the Canadian Hydrographic Service's plan to reduce the unknown areas now portrayed as grey or white zones on Canadian hydrographic products.

Kongsberg explain that the GeoSwath Plus is capable of covering an area of 12 x the depth of the water in areas that are not always accessible using other systems. The design of the GeoSwath Plus's rugged transducers and the high quality data that it produces makes it the logical choice in the wave zone when occasional "physical soundings" may occur.
