All details

Companies that need hydrographic survey tools understand how important a steady and firm deployment of the sensor is for ensuring that the system functions well. Therefore, it is best to buy this equipment from a reliable partner that delivers high-quality machinery. Draftec is that reliable company. It is for good reason that many companies have relied on us for the handling of their hydrographic survey equipment. We always deliver high-end equipment that meets the requirements of our clients.

An innovative and secure system to store and handle your hydrographic survey tools

The equipment used by companies for offshore surveys is often valuable and delicate. For this reason, and for service purposes, secure storage and easy access to the equipment is essential. Draftec has developed an innovative moonpool system that can be implemented in existing as well as newbuilt vessels.

The moonpool system opens a gate valve, mounted closely to the hull, and hydraulically lowers a guiding pole in order to position the survey sensor approximately half a metre below the hull. Together, all the above has made this moonpool system a user-friendly and versatile tool, to the great satisfaction of our customers.​

Several features and benefits of our moonpool system:

  • Easy deployment of equipment;
  • Compact and modular design;
  • Standardised and exchangeable components;
  • Optimised power requirements;
  • Limited deck space necessary;
  • Electrical or hydraulic driven;
  • Integrated control system.

Our hydrographical survey systems are ready for deployment and meets all quality demands

Draftec has developed several moonpool systems and custom-built survey handling equipment. This equipment is designed for easy vessel integration.

The deployment system is designed and built according to Class regulations, including the emergency hoist functionality. Since the system is PLC-controlled, it can easily be connected to the vessel’s control system for operation, status indication and alarm functionality. All of the above makes this moonpool system a user-friendly and versatile tool, to the great satisfaction of our customers. It is not surprising that many companies rely on our hydraulic survey equipment for their offshore investigations.
