Reson was awarded a number of contracts in the offshore sector in 2008 due to the technical success of SeaBat 7125 multibeam sonar systems. The systems mounted on ROVs have been delivered to British contractors and marine survey equipment rental companies.
All SeaBat 7125 systems provide a depth rating of up to 6,000 meters and featuring either a single (400kHz) or dual frequency (200kHz/400kHz). The dual frequency version allows for a change of frequency without replacing or reconfiguring the sonar and thus reduces the survey time. SeaBat 7125 is used for a variety of offshore applications such as pipeline route surveys, underwater installations and inspections, rig moves and cable route surveys.
SeaBat 7125 systems have the ability to operate in harsh conditions that are constantly changing. Furthermore, with an effective swath width of 128˚, up to 512 beams, a fast ping rate and a range of up to 300 metres with the dual frequency configuration, the SeaBat 7125 has the capacity to map the sea floor faster and more accurately than ever before.
Recent SeaBat orders include:
Seatronics added four more SeaBat 7125 systems to their large pool of SeaBat systems, where some are configured into dual head systems.
Oceanscan and Dynamic Positioning Services Limited (DPS) took their first orders of a SeaBat 7125 respectively.
The ROV operations company, Fugro Rovtech, took delivery of four SeaBat 7125 sonar systems, also configured into two dual head systems
The survey companies, Osiris Projects and Clydeside Surveys have each decided to purchase a system for offshore applications.
