FarSounder-500 incorporated into 120m superyacht refit

Marel Electronics, FarSounder’s dealer in Greece, recently commissioned a FarSounder-500 as part of the refit of a 120-metre superyacht.

Marel was contracted to supply, connect, integrate and commission the system.

Chalkis Shipyard in Greece mounted the sonar directly on the hull per the drawings provided by the ship’s naval architect under the guidance of – and assisted by – the FarSounder technical team.

Kyriakos Alexopoulos, of Marel Electronics, commented “With a FarSounder-500 aboard, bridge officers expect to increase the ship’s safety when approaching coastal shallow water areas. Up to now, they had to rely on tenders and divers to check the seabed and waters ahead.”

Navigating officers using the FarSounder-500 are able to see a live, intuitive, 3D image of what lies beneath the surface ahead of the ship. As an additional safety measure, operators can set automated alarms to be alerted of any dangers before it is too late.

Marel will be exhibiting at Posidonia 2018, where it will discuss the refit project and share its knowledge of FarSounder’s innovative sonar technology.
