BlueView Delivers Imaging Sonars to Fugro

BlueView Technologies, a company specializing in compact acoustic imaging and measurement technology, yesterday announced the latest delivery of two (2) P900-130 2D Multibeam Imaging Sonar for Fugro Subsea Services in Aberdeen making a total of six (6) units total delivered to the group over the past year.

The BlueView P900-130 2D Imaging Sonar features an ultra-wide 130° field-of-view in a compact housing to deliver crisp, real-time imagery and accurate data. Installed on the latest batch of Falcon underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROV) from Saab Seaeye, the units will be used to provide real-time situational awareness in the tough underwater environments in which the vehicles must operate.

“Our vehicles are often called to work in the harshest of conditions, a compromise in visibility just isn’t an option” commented Jim Mann, Global ROV Manager of Fugro. Mann added “The compact size, wide field of view and extended range of the BlueView 2D MultiBeam Imaging Sonar make them an ideal fit for our observation and inspection class vehicles.”

“It is great to see Fugro adopting our 2D Multibeam Imaging Sonar to improve situational awareness for their ROV pilots” said Ed Cheesman, Director of Global Energy Sales at BlueView. Cheesman added, “With their long range and video-like feed the BlueView’s 2D Multibeam Imaging Sonar greatly improve operating efficiency by reducing vehicle downtime and speeding up operational tasks through improved situational awareness.”
