Fast-growing Scottish subsea services specialist Sulmara has set its sights on further success after investing $1.6 million in equipment which will allow it to limit the environmental impact of offshore operations. Glasgow-headquartered Sulmara has placed the order with Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. for several of its Wave Adaptive Modular Vessels (WAM-V), a dual-hull Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) which specialises in near-shore data collection.
ELWAVE deployed its new active electrics sensor Octopulse in September 2023 for an UXO survey on EFGL (Eoliennes Flottantes du Golfe du Lion) floating offshore wind farm site. This survey was carried out with ELWAVE’s Octopulse sensor based on its patented CEDAR® technology providing accurate and high-sensitivity electrical impedance cartography of the area surrounding the wind farm.
