Caspian Sea Pipeline Survey

In February 2020, Aequorea personnel assisted XOCEAN in collecting MBES and SSS data during a pipeline integrity survey in the Caspian Sea. Utilising dual head R2Sonic 2022’s along with a POS MV Wavemaster II ensured that only a single pass was required to accurately survey the pipeline and surrounding seabed.


Working with XOCEAN’s unique ‘over the horizon’ unmanned vessel technology meant that all operations could be carried out from shore with the only trips to the port necessary to download data and refuel before continuing with the pipeline survey operations. Once data had been collected, Aequorea processed the point cloud data sets and provided quality control, ready for final deliverables.
