Valeport Ltd

Hello and welcome to our Autumn Newsletter.

Despite the trying times in the Oil & Gas sectors, business at Valeport is very good with sales in the Hydrographic Survey and Ocean Science markets very strong. New developments are still a priority with us and new products are now in production. The introduction of our new SWiFT SVP further strengthens our position in the Sound Velocity product place and as initial feedback points to the SWiFT being the best shallow water survey SVP available today.

SWiFT App now in store!

For all you IOS users, we now have the new SWiFT app available via the Apple store.
This great app is designed to work with our SWiFT SVP where it features:

The SWiFT weighs in at just 2kg and is positioned as the ultimate handheld profiler. Designed with seamless workflow in mind, the high accuracy sensor technology for sound velocity, temperature, density and salinity profiles provides exceptional data quality has inbuilt GPS to geolocate every profile. The SWiFT is our best, professional and affordable SVP.

 - Hyperion Fluorometer-delivers a high performance measurement of Chlorophyll A, Rhodamine and Fluoresceine in a compact and robust package ideal for ROV and AUV use.

Data is being used for monitoring chlorophyll levels in this unique area and transmitted via GPRS every 24 hours. We have added this site to our own network which can be viewed from our website and selecting full data sets, latest, WQ from the pages.

Swathe Services REceiving Valeport Swift
Shallow Survey a Great Success
It is always good to have a high profile conference/exhibition on your doorstep and the Shallow Survey in Plymouth did not disappoint.
Valeport featured well through equipment used to conduct surveys and were pleased to complete on a number of sales as well.
Pictured here is James Williams from Swathe Services receiving his new SWiFT SVP from our Sales Manager Kevin Edwards. 


Valeport Rapid SV
RapidSV delivers
A major Hydrographic Survey in the Bering Sea off Northwestern Alaska has just been successfully completed using the Teledyne Oceanscience rapidCAST profiling system using the Valeport rapidSV profiler. 
The equipment was used in a hydrographic survey aboard Qualifier 105As as reported in Hydro-International recently (see full article).

The system, which incorporates the Valeport rapidSV profiler as part of the package, has been used to update the nautical charts of the area as part of a project undertaken by TerraSond on behalf of the NOAA's Office of Coast Survey.


Valeport UltraSV
ultraSV and T20-P integration working well
Valeport's German representative MBT who are based in Kiel, have created a happy marriage with the Teledyne Reson T20-P for their customer Hamburg Port Authority.

The compact housing of our ultraSV made it ideal for this project and the sensor was attached to the T20-P very easily. See for more information:
