Turnkey customer-specific concept including installation and training in hardware and software to support Geo Group, Germany, in mapping subsea areas.

Scope of supply
The deliveries made by MacArtney have been distributed to four GEO subsidiaries. Geo Ingenieurservice Süd has taken delivery of Teledyne Reson SeaBat T50-P, SBG Ekinox2D, Valeport SVP, QINSy Survey. These products are applied on board a small vessel for surveys in small lakes and rivers.
 
Geo Ingenieurservice NordWest has received Teledyne Reson SeaBat T20-R DualHead, GNSS ObeLx-R (Septentrio inside), Valeport SVP, QINSy Survey. This equipment has been supplied to a new-built trailerable vessel and represents the first dual head multibeam system for the GEO Group to operate in shallow areas and in nearshore inland projects.
