Shallow water research and testing platform

Equipment Type: Shallow water research and testing platform

A large research platform is permanently moored in the centre of Langstone harbour. This is a unique facility available for short and long-term marine monitoring and submersion trials. Regular samples can be collected from panels and other structures deployed on the raft. Instruments or panels may be immersed at any level from the surface to the sea bed, additionally equipment may be attached to the raft above the water. The raft can also provide a platform for marine remote sensing equipment and tidal turbine trials. There is a secured area with an access hatch down into the harbour water column. We can offer a range of services, from hiring of facilities to complete management of immersion/exposure trials including sample analyses and report writing.
