MMT announces a contract award with the Black Sea Maritime Archaeological Project (Black Sea MAP) for archaeological and geological scientific surveys at the Black Sea.
The second season of the project will be performed during September 2016 from the vessel Stril Explorer and will consist of detailed seabed mapping, inspections and geotechnical sampling in close co-operation with the project scientific team. The primary survey tool on board will be the SROV “Surveyor Interceptor”, jointly owned and operated by MMT and Reach Subsea. The SROV is the most efficient tool available for detailed mapping of large areas at deep water, and it has proven an excellent performance and track record at various projects throughout 2015 and 2016.
