PanGeo Subsea Inc. and ThayerMahan Inc. recently executed a cooperative partnering agreement to provide a complete suite of state-of-the-art seabed and sub-seabed survey technologies to reduce risk and provide unsurpassed 3D acoustic imagery to clients in the offshore energy industry, to national security stakeholders, academia and the scientific communities.
PanGeo Subsea's imaging technology can identify sub-seabed hazards using real time 3D volumetric Synthetic Aperture Sonar data
PanGeo Subsea offers two acoustic survey technologies –the Sub-Bottom Imager™ and the Acoustic Corer™ that penetrate the seabed floor to depths of 20-30 ft and 120 ft respectively to provide true real time 3D visualization of buried geohazards.
ThayerMahan is a world leader in providing autonomous maritime and seabed survey solutions. ThayerMahan personnel have over 250+ years of maritime operational experience in the most challenging seaborne environments. ThayerMahan provides high-speed, large swath, precision, low-cost seabed surveys from vessels -large and small. PanGeo's sub-seabed imaging technologies will augment ThayerMahan's current seabed survey capabilities to provide the full range of surveying services necessary to safely conduct marine installations.
ThayerMahan SeaScout uses an actively stabilized towfish and Synthetic Aperture Sonar to produce high resolution, real-time seabed imagery at high speed from vessels large and small
ThayerMahan CEO Mike Connor stated:
"We are proud to be teaming with PanGeo. This partnership combines ThayerMahan's ability to conduct high-speed, high-precision seabed search with PanGeo's ability to investigate sub-seabed conditions using cutting edge technology. Together, we provide a more complete service offering to our customers in government, industry, and academia."
PanGeo Subsea CEO Moya Cahill said:
“PanGeo is excited for this partnership with ThayerMahan. PanGeo is a global leader in high resolution 3D SAS sub-bottom imagers. We are happy to bring PanGeo's risk mitigation solutions to the US offshore renewable sector with ThayerMahan and look forward to building upon the success we've enjoyed as part of the Block Island and South Fork offshore wind farm projects. We are confident this partnership between PanGeo and ThayerMahan will strengthen our respective positions to deliver leading edge survey solutions for UXO, pre-route, depth of burial and pile foundation clearance surveys."
