DutchWorkboats and Stema Systems introduced the “Survey-machine” at Europort 2013.
This survey boat is in production once it is on location – it is a carefree money maker to her owners. Surveyors keep high standards of data quality and yet are able to keep ahead of dredging, deliver contract surveys in time, survey several projects in a day. The ‘Survey-machine’ provides the tools.
Survey-machine is not just a claim. This is an elaborate concept of a trailerable, fast and comfortable survey boat, with built-in and calibrated high-end survey tools. Surveyors save a lot of work on mounting and calibrating survey gear and on the time needed for reaching the project location and the surveying itself.
