'Motorways of the Sea' Contract MMT for Hydrographic Survey

Press Release
Thursday, May 31, 2012

MMT (Sweden) has been awarded parts of two separate hydrographic survey contracts for the EU financed project 'MONALISA' for the Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) and the Finnish Transport Agency (FTA).

MONALISA is a Motorways of the Sea project which aims at giving a concrete contribution to efficient, safe and environmentally friendly maritime transport. This is done through development, demonstration and dissemination of innovative e-navigational services to the shipping industry, which can lay the groundwork for a future international deployment. Quality assurance of hydrographic data for the major navigational areas in Swedish and Finnish waters in the Baltic Sea contributes to improving safety and the optimization of ship routes.

The Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) awarded MMT part of the contract “Baltic Sea and Bothnian Surveys 2012-13” (BSB12-13). SMA is the government agency primarily responsible for providing infrastructural services in the form of safe and accessible fairways to meet the needs of shipping in territorial as well as in EEZ waters. A comprehensive MBES survey of the areas is critical for the efficient routing and safe navigation of all types of shipping especially with regards to deep draught shipping. The results of these hydrographic surveys will be used in updating nautical charts and associated navigational publications.

MMT will perform a hydrographic survey on Swedish shipping routes in the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Bothnia. The survey is planned to be carried out with Kongsbergs EM2040D and the work will commence in July.

MMT has also been awarded a part of the contract “Baltic Sea and Bay of Bothnia Hydrographic Surveys 2012” (BSBB2012) by the Finnish Transport Agency (FTA). In this contract, MMT will undertake the Hydrographic Survey of the Finnish parts of the Northern Baltic Sea and in the Bay of Bothnia. MMT are pleased to have the opportunity to do surveys for the FTA.
