The UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency has awarded the UK division of Sweden-headquartered MMT a further two-year contract extension under which the company will continue to carry out high-definition medium to deepwater survey operations as part of its Civil Hydrographic Program (CHP) covering domestic waters.

It is the second time the company has been awarded a comparable extension following an initial three-year undertaking.

MMT will thus continue to provide services for the CHP until 2018. They will comprise traditional survey methods combined with new advanced laser techniques, according to Project Manager Martin Godfrey.
