The EIVA rental team has been preparing for the upcoming season by expanding the list of equipment available for rent.
The new purchases include products that are new to the rental pool, as well as additional units of products already on the list.
An example of the latter is Geometrics G-882 Magnetometers incl. altimeter, which have been available for rent via EIVA for a long time. Nevertheless, this product was on the shopping list because we continue to see a growing demand for this technology.
The number of ScanFish remotely operated towed vehicle (ROTV) units have also been expanded with the addition of a ScanFish Katria with 3D steering. The ScanFish is a very popular rental product, especially to those customers specialising in UXO detection, and many have expressed interest in making use of its new feature, which was introduced in 2017 and allows for control of the ROTV’s horizontal movements.
A new name on the list is the NORBIT iWBMSh multi-beam echo sounder (MBE) with a narrow transmit, integrated with an Applanix OceanMaster GNSS/INS and a real-time sound velocity profiler. This compact system is brought in as an addition to our existing range of MBE systems, which includes units from Teledyne RESON, Teledyne BlueView and R2Sonic.
A Tritech MicronNav USBL tracking system is now also available for rent to be used with various types of platforms such as VideoRay ROVs, ScanFish ROTVs, etc.
And please do not hesitate to reach out if you would like to discuss the possibility of renting for your next project.
