ASV Global to Demonstrate C-Worker 5 Autonomous Surface Vehicle at U.S Hydro 2017

Friday March 10th, 2017 TAGS: , , , ,

Broussard LA and Houston TX, March 9, 2017, ASV Global has announced it will be demonstrating its C-Worker 5 Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) at the U.S Hydro show in in Galveston, Texas March 20-23, 2017.

Designed, built, and operated by ASV Global, C-Worker 5 is the ideal platform to support construction and survey operations. The 5.5m ASV is designed for up to 7 days endurance at survey speeds of up to 7 knots, minimizing launch and recovery operations and increasing survey efficiency.

C-Worker 5 will be hosting a variety of equipment including a Renishaw Merlin LiDAR sensor, a Teledyne Reson Seabat T-20-P multi-beam echosounder, an Applanix POS MV, and HYPACK software. This selection of sensors will show C-Worker 5’s capabilities as a facilities surface and subsea survey platform and enable visitors to see the ASView® control system in action.

The vessel will be carrying out two separate demonstrations:

  • 10am, Tuesday March 21 visitors will be able to see C-Worker 5 surveying a stacked jack up drilling rig.
  • 1:30pm, Wednesday March 22 the C-Worker 5 can be seen surveying the Interstate 45 bridge between Galveston Island and the mainland.
  • Between demonstrations a dockside tour of the C-Worker 5 can also be arranged.

Visit ASV Global at booth #39 to secure your place at the demonstration or email to pre-book in advance.

ASV will also be hosting a happy hour during the demo on Wednesday 22nd.

C-Worker 5 has a proven track record of reducing the cost of survey work, having carried out data collection in conditions up to sea state 5. In 2016, survey company TerraSond used the C-Worker 5 alongside their survey vessel to run a major hydrographic survey in the Bering Sea region of Alaska. The C-Worker 5 collected 2,275 nautical line miles of side scan and multibeam data – 44% of the project total. Using the C-Worker 5 resulted in an on-site time saving of almost 25 days.
