M40P is a multi-purpose surveying unmanned surface vessel(USV) platform for estuary, on-shore, and off-shore applications. It’s designed to facilitate efficient data acquisition for construction planning and routine maintenance in the field of offshore wind farms and oil and gas exploration.
The M40P can carry a wide range of equipment to conduct bathymetry, seabed mapping, and geological hazard inspection.
Single-beam echo sounder
Multibeam echo sounder
3D LiDAR scanner
Side scan sonar
Water quality sonde
Piloted by autonomous navigation algorithm, M40P can carry out round-clock inspection according to the preset route, greatly reduces the workload of and safety threats to personnel.
M40P’s unique hull catamaran design structure design provides exceptional performance even in turbulent waves, significantly reducing swaying and spray foam, providing a stable and quite working condition for acoustic equipment.
Quiet and Clean
Powered by a diesel generator, the M40P has a single lifetime of up to 24 hours, while it can operate continuously for weeks by refueling.
The generator can be turned off when surveying to provide a quiet and zero-emission operating environment for the equipment to guarantee data accuracy.
The configuration of twin engines and twin propellers, combined with the catamaran shape, elevates its maneuverability when navigating closely around foundations constructions for zoom-in inspection.
High-precision positioning and advanced navigation control algorithm minize risk of collision.
Multiple USVs can group up to form a fleet, navigating the same route while conducting varied inspections.
The fleet can be piloted by one workstation to conduct a large scale investigation of different dimensions, significantly reducing labor costs and improving operational efficiency.
