GERMAN COASTAL REGION CHOOSES KONGSBERG’s EM2040C
Six survey vessels from German Waterways and Shipping Offices in Bremen, Bremerhaven, Hamburg, Stralsund, Tönning and Wilhelmshaven will be retrofitted with hydrographic survey systems from Kongsberg Maritime.
Two vessels have had an EM3002 before and the other four will get KONGSBERG systems for the first time. All will have latest generation of shallow water multibeam echo sounder system EM2040C (dual head).
In November 2014 Kongsberg Maritime in Hamburg won the bidding process from the Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration for a tender of six vessels to be refitted with complete hydrographic survey systems including a new multibeam sounder on each. The shallow water multibeam echosounder system EM2040C in dual head configuration will be installed on the survey vessels BALTIC, JADE, NADIR, UWE JENS LORNSEN, WEDEL and ZENIT. The first delivery has just recently taken place and the last commissioning is planned for the 1st quarter of 2016. The installations will be completed in parallel on different yards in Germany.
