Commissioning of the vessels was carried out at Esnad Port in Abu Dhabi jointly by Unique and Kongsberg in the presence of the engineering and survey team of Bayanat. The harbour acceptance tests (HATs) and sea acceptance tests (SATs) were carried out at the site, and results were tabulated and verified by the team along with the data processing team at Bayanat.

The system was found to be working satisfactorily. As a part of the HAT/SAT system, calibration was also done in order to ensure system performance. The data was verified successfully using Hypack/Hysweep software to check the quality of EM 2040 D system on board both vessels.

“We are pleased with the completion of this hydrographic project that involved the installation of EM2040 multibeam echosounders aboard two vessels for one of our important client, Bayanat,” said Ian Huggins, Unique System FZE general manager. “The capability of our engineering team backed by the availability of modern hydrographic survey equipment in our inventory has helped us to finish various stages of the project ranging from the installation of survey equipment to the commissioning of the vessels. We look forward to our continued association with Bayanat and providing our valuable technical assistance in their future projects as well.”
