Share:Royal NIOZ and KONGSBERG sign multibeam contract

23.01.2006

The Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ), the Netherlands national Institute for oceanographic research and KONGSBERG have signed a contract for the delivery and installation of a KONGSBERG EM 302 1x2 degree multibeam echo sounder for the 66 metre long oceanographic research vessel "Pelagia" - built in 1991.

Chirped ping technology
With the installation of this equipment NIOZ is upgrading the research facilities of this multi-purpose research vessel know for its silent and smooth behaviour. Thanks to the use of new chirped ping technology it is now capable of producing a swath of 4000 m at 5 km water depth. This makes "Pelagia" an even more attractive research platform, not only for the Dutch marine research community, but also for third parties. The acquisition of the multibeam system was made possible through a grant of the Netherlands national science foundation NWO.
