CMS Team Onshore Winter 2016 ActivitiesPosted: December 19, 2016, 1:49 pm
With winter approaching CMS is in the process of moving its vessels into their winter berths. This is a really good opportunity for the CMS team to get out and about, meeting old friends and making new contacts.
In September CMS attended two very noteworthy conferences, firstly the Scottish Renewables Marine Conference and Exhibition held in Eden Court, Inverness. The event was very well organised and had many interesting presentations. CMS had a stand at this event and it was our first outing as a team at such an event. It was actually a lot of fun and the CMS team had lots of interest in our vessels and capabilities. We even ran out of business cards by the end of this conference.
The second conference for the CMS team in September was the World Canals Conference 2016. CMS attended this event to support the presentation given by Stuart Leather, Director of ADUS DeepOcean Ltd. Stuart’s presentations “How can modern survey techniques assist in the cost effective management of a complex asset such as the Caledonian Canal?” was very well received and CMS were delighted to see part of the presentation included the trials ADUS DeepOcean and CMS carried out on a section of the Caledonian Canal. This trial simultaneously acquired high resolution sonar and laser data of the Caledonian Canal from CMS vessels the ORCA III and Betty. We also conducted a trial survey on a section of the Kessock Bridge supports. Watch this blog space for more details and results of this trial in the New Year.
In October, CMS attended the 6th Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland Annual Science Meeting held in Glasgow. This was a very well attended event with some very interesting presentations and workshops. The fundamental aim of this meeting is to promote the latest advances in marine science, good governance and using sound science responsibly. The presentations covered a wide variety of marine topics and some very exciting projects. CMS’s Marine Biologist also found some interesting equipment at the RS-Aqua stand, the RS-Orca a new underwater acoustic data acquisition and recording instrument that is capable of obtaining the richest underwater data sets possible. Overall a very thought provoking and enjoyable conference.
Watch out for the CMS Team as they will be out and about in the New Year ready to answer any queries you may have on our vessels or survey capabilities.
