Port of Duisburg, World's largest inland port today selected KONGSBERG Multibeam Echo sounder as part of the upgradation of their survey capability which presently uses a single beam echosounder.

The Port of Duisburg is located at the confluence of Rhine and Ruhr two major shipping arteries that link central European industry as well as consumers to the seaports on the North Sea coast. ccupying an area of 3350 acres including 21 basins with a total size of 450 acres, the Port of Duisburg moves more than 120 million tons of goods per year.

Duisburg Hafen AG, the owner of the public Port of Duisburg informed that with the switch over to the wide swath bathymetry system,GeoSwath Plus, it will facilitate full bathymetry coverage of the harbour basins with unprecedented resolution, while at the same time cutting down on survey time.

The side scan data that is co-registered with the system can also be used to detect debris as well as mapping bottom types. The data provides the basis for monitoring and maintaining the most important asset of a port, its basins and shipping channels.
