Titan Environmental Surveys Limited has increased its fleet to five operating coastal vessels. The new vessel is expected enhance and strengthen the capabilities of the Titan survey fleet.
The new launched and tested Titan Discovery is a 13m long GRP laminates catamaran designed and built by Alicat of Great Yarmouth. It is MCA coded to carry up to 12 passengers. The vessel is fully equipped to conduct hydrographic, oceanographic and environmental surveys up to 60 nautical miles from safe haven, coupled with the shallow draft; it makes the Discovery ideally suited for surveying in nearshore, coastal, estuarine and intertidal environments.
The central moon pool on the Titan Discovery is adapted to deploy high resolution multi-beam systems for a variety of hydrographic requirements as well as being able to deploy Acoustic Doppler Current profilers for oceanographic surveys.
The catamaran is already on route to the South coast of England where it is scheduled to deploy its geo-swathe system for an aggregate dredge monitoring survey.
