Hydrographic Society SW UK At Valeport 2015

Valeport welcomed more than 40 guests their offices on the River Dart earlier this month and were delighted to host The Hydrographic Society South West branch for their opening meeting of the 2015-16 season.

Hydrographic Society SW UK Visit to Valeport - 2015The welcome and opening presentation was given by Matthew Quartley, MD. In a candid presentation he discussed the impact that the down turn of the Oil & Gas sector was having on the industry and on Valeport but also revealed Valeport's optimism for the future as he disclosed plans for Valeport's new building for which planning permission has recently been granted. See picture of Valeport's proposed new building below.

Jim Gardiner, Valeport's Product Manager, gave an insight into the key role that Valeport products (CTD's and SV's) play in the new Teledyne/ Oceanscience rapidCAST system. This was demonstrated recently on the Fugro academy vessel in the Plymouth Sound. Much of the debate, with those Hydrographic Surveyors present, was centered around the mass of SV Profiles produced and the variation and visible effects from outfalls along this well surveyed route.

The meeting concluded with a tour of Valeport's new production facility with viewings of all products that were on show.

Valeport are keen to support The Hydrographic Society UK and it was a gratifying when, on leaving, one visitor commented - "you guys at Valeport have a real passion for this, it’s not just a job and it shows!".
