Challenging “Investigator”

31st October, 2022

Our dedicated survey vessel S.V “Investigator”, has been deployed at Arnside Viaduct to determine an estuary bed topography and sub–bed structural geometry.

Potentially the most challenging hydrographic project of the year, “Investigator” has had to manage limited tidal windows, strong currents, and high turbidity.

Arnside viaduct is located on the Cumbrian Coast Line, connecting Barrow-in-Furness, Ulverston, Grange-over-Sands, Carnforth, and Lancaster.

The resulting structure inspection above and below the waterline to the highest resolution proved more challenging… But do-able!
