Our Vision

A future where all inland and coastal data acquisition is delivered by low-impact, economic autonomous vessels

Waterborne data acquisition reborn

Impact & Sustainability

HydroSurv™ has impacts across seven

UN Sustainable Development Goals as we aim to:

UN Goal 6
Provide economic, low-impact hydrographic surveys which contribute to improved analysis and management of water resources
UN Goal 7
Provide zero-emission waterborne data acquisition, replacing conventional fuelled survey vessels with electric USVs charged from renewable energy sources
Create new jobs which transfer work from seafaring personnel to specialists working in land-based operations centres
Update the inspection and monitoring solutions available to the marine and offshore renewable energy sectors to improve efficiency and unlock cost reduction
Substantially reduce waste through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse
Improve our understanding and resilience to climate-related flood risks by providing economic, low-impact river discharge monitoring and hydraulic modelling
Provide increased frequency of economic and comparative datasets for the protection and restoration of waterborne ecosystems
