Industry Database

The Polish Navy has upgraded one of its rescue vessels with a high resolution multibeam sonar which will help broaden the scope of its duties.

Teledyne Reson has delivered its SeaBat T50-R multibeam sonar system to the Nauta Shipyard in Gdynia, where it’s currently being installed in the hull of the rescue vessel ORP Piast.

SENControl has not only been contracted to deliver and install the Teledyne RESON SeaBat T50-R sonar system, but also the delivery, installation and integration of a Dynamic Positioning System and a complete 4-point mooring system for the vessel.

Systems upgrade

ORP Piast was originally commissioned to the Polish Navy in 1974 as a multi-role rescue-salvage vessel.

In the late 1990s ORP Piast received an extensive refitting and modernisation. The vessel is now again undergoing an upgrade at the Nauta Shipyard in Gdynia which includes the installation of a SeaBat T50-R.

After the update and commissioning of the new systems, OPR Piast will be operating primarily in the Baltic Sea as a submarine support and rescue vessel and, with the new sonar system installed, will have increased seabed mapping capability.

The SeaBat sonar system is the brainchild of Teledyne BlueView and Teledyne Odom, which provide a range of high quality underwater acoustic hardware and software solutions for underwater imaging within Teledyne Marine.

Teledyne PDS SeaBat Multibeam Sonars are widely used for many seabed mapping and dredging operations.

They are delivered through brands including such as SeaBat, BlueView, Odom, HydroSweep and ParaSound Multibeam Echosounder and Teledyne PDS software suite.
