Seabed Sampling – Webb Dock, Port of Melbourne
Seabed Samples were collected from our commercial vessel ‘Torden’ at Webb dock, in the Port of Melbourne during January 2018.
Our 3 point anchoring system allowed for accurate positioning at all predetermined locations. This system also allowed for minimal movement of the vessel whilst sample activities were underway. Scientists utilised various instruments to collect these samples down to depths of 10 metres. Recovering these instruments from these depths was made effortless thanks to our onboard machinery and stable platform.
Communication and shipping movements were kept up to date with the local controlling authorities and the Master 5 onboard ensured that all safety aspects were monitored.
