A new intelligent wide-sweep ROTV solution from EIVA is specially designed to optimize magnetometer surveys in terms of reduced operation costs and high data quality.
The offshore survey solution specialist EIVA a/s adds a new model to its popular product range of Remotely Operated Towed Vehicle (ROTV) solutions with the launch of the ScanFish Katria.
ScanFish Katria is specially designed for detection of sub-bottom magnetic anomalies, combining more than 30 years of experience in the offshore survey industry with high-end equipment and a design process based on customer requirements.
The intelligent platform allows for time-efficient magnetometer surveys, as it covers larger survey areas in one sweep through a horizontal setup of four magnetometers. By means of the terrain-following operation mode, the magnetometers are positioned as close to the seabed as the topography allows. This ensures less expensive operations and high-quality data with better indication of signal strength and origin.
Magnetometer quality and performance are key to successful surveys. Therefore, the magnetometer type included in the ScanFish Katria is the Geometrics G-882 Marine Magnetometer, a high-end yet low-cost solution and the most used in the industry.
As the ScanFish Katria is towed at a distance, any type of vessel can be used without risking the survey data being affected by its magnetic signature.
The ScanFish Katria standard package combined with the optional extras, including for example winch and tow cable, constitute a turn-key solution, offering all the necessary components for an optimal magnetometer survey set-up that matches your exact needs.
