iSURVEY, a provider of survey and positioning services to the global oil and gas, offshore renewables and telecommunications markets, said it has invested more than £40,000 in staff training.
In order to meet client demand, iSURVEY staff were educated in rapid and accurate acquisition and processing of seabed survey data, the company said.
During February and March, the staff gained a deeper understanding and awareness of the key elements of multi-beam echo sounder (MBES) acquisition and data management. Training was carried out through a combination of instructor-led classroom, workshop and offshore practical exercises.
The offshore data acquisition element was undertaken from Aberdeen Harbor using an inshore vessel to perform seabed surveys in Nigg Bay. Classroom and workshop training was completed at iSURVEY’s Aberdeenshire base in Banchory.
Investment in training is a key strategy across the iSURVEY Group, and iSURVEY AS has recently taken delivery of an inshore vessel which will provide an ideal platform for testing and developing the latest seabed survey and positioning applications.
iSURVEY Managing Director, Andrew McMurtrie, said, “We are seeing strong demand for rapid high-quality data delivery, particularly across our renewables focused client base. To meet the need for efficient acquisition, coupled with timely and accurate presentation of processed data, we recognized that by providing additional training, our staff are better placed to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.”
