iSURVEY, a leading provider of survey and positioning services to the global oil and gas, offshore renewables and telecomms markets, has invested more than £40,000 in staff training.

The company found itself needing to invest in training in order to meet client demand, with the main focus being rapid and accurate acquisition and processing of seabed survey data.

“We are seeing strong demand for rapid high-quality data delivery, particularly across our renewables focused client base,” said Andrew McMurtrie, managing director, iSURVEY.

“To meet the need for efficient acquisition, coupled with timely and accurate presentation of processed data, we recognised that by providing additional training, our staff are better placed to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.”

Intensive training

During February and March of this year, iSURVEY staff gained a deeper understanding and awareness of the key elements of multi-beam echo sounder (MBES) acquisition and data management.

Training was carried out through a combination of instructor-led classroom, workshop and offshore practical exercises.

The offshore data acquisition element was undertaken from Aberdeen Harbour using an inshore vessel to perform seabed surveys in Nigg Bay. Classroom and workshop training was completed at iSURVEY’s Aberdeenshire base in Banchory.

Investment in training is a key strategy across the iSURVEY Group and it has recently taken delivery of an inshore vessel which will provide an ideal platform for testing and developing the latest seabed survey and positioning applications.

iSURVEY Group was founded in 2004 and has grown to have more than 100 employees working from its bases in Aberdeen, Oslo and Singapore.
