Swathe Services assist Ports of Jersey surveys

Seawork exhibitor, Swathe Services has assisted SBG Systems with the upgrade and servicing of the Ports of Jersey's Apogee Navsight Solution.

This system was recently upgraded from the existing SBG Apogee-U which is designed specifically for marine applications and was originally installed by Swathe Services. The Ports purchased the Apogee-U high-performance Inertial Navigation System (INS) in 2016 along with a high resolution R2SONIC Multi-Beam Echo-Sounder (MBES) to conduct Hydrographic surveys from St Helier and for additional commercial survey operations.

James Williams Managing Director of Swathe Services, says: “The performance of the Apogee Navsight offers superior performance compared to competitive products and allows for easier installation and integration into existing hydrographic systems. This modular solution can be supplied with a small ruggedized topside housing or rack mount depending on the boat setup.  The upgrade was done as part of a warranty extension package for both their SONAR and INS systems.’

Aaron Gavey, Head of Maritime Operations at Ports of Jersey, says: “The warranty renewal and upgrade package that Swathe put together has given us peace of mind that we can continue to operate our high-performance survey systems effectively and at reduced financial risk.”

SBG’s Navsight Solutions are high-end MEMS-based Inertial Navigation Systems.  They are robust, maintenance-free, highly accurate and cost-effective.
