Valeport are delighted to announce that we are continuing our long-standing relationship with Harwich Haven Authority (HHA) by partnering with OceanWise to supply a new environmental monitoring system including Valeport TideStations
More than thirty years ago Valeport began supplying HHA, which itself has been operating for more than 900 years and now attracts trade from all over the world managing 40% of the UK’s container traffic travel through its area.
Profiling just got more powerful
SWiFTplus has been designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK to exceed your profiling needs.
From combining sensors for multiple profiles in a single drop, to seamless data transfer for instant use, and all within our signature titanium casing for durability.
Technology and precision are combined in an easy to use compact, robust and portable handheld profiler.

Exhibitions and Workshops
Shallow Survey 2018 
Sharing a stand with our Canadian agent, DASCO, we received strong interest in the SWiFT SVP and the new SWiFTplus. It was good to connect with so many of our customers and we’re already receiving orders for the SWiFT SVP, Midas Surveyor and the TideMaster Tide Gauge from the show.
Teledyne Marine Technology Workshop Europe 2018
This was a well attended event at which we conducted demonstrations of the Teledyne Marine rapidCAST together with our SWiFT SVP and Valeport Connect software. These industry respected workshops are relevant to Valeport because of our presence in the multi-beam echo sounder, sound velocity and sensors for the USV, AUV and ASV markets.
