After 18 months Design and Construction in Guangzhou “ESL Survey 2” has been delivered.
With a 40 square meter back deck, multiple sensor mounts and launch/recovery systems this vessel allows ESL to deploy a wider range of survey systems than could be accommodated on ESL Survey 1. Our first boat shall still be used for shallow water surveys while “Survey 2” shall be utilised where multiple sensor options such a Multi-Beam, UAV Photogrametry and Laser Scanning are required.

Edward and Mike carried out the SCB Tower Top GNSS configuration survey on 30th Oct 2018. It was a beautiful night with little pollution as can be seen from the photo below.
ESL have recently completed the data capture for the Green Island Heritage Site. This involved the integration of UAV photogrammetry and Laser Scanning.
Following receipt of CAD flying permit data capture for both Aerial and Terrestrial was completed in 4 days. Production of BIM Model is now ongoing.
Our Hydrographic Team have successfully commissioned and tested a new Universal Sonar Mount (USM) using a Reson TP-50 multibeam with Octans 3000 IMU and Trimble GNSS.
Our new Faro S150 Laser Scanner has arrived and has been put to work.
It’s small size and mobility complements our Leica P20 scanner which together with our Faro Freestyle gives us great flexibility in choosing the right tool for the job.
Laser Scanning and scan to BIM is currently a growing market sector for ESL.

They predict that construction will move towards automation by 2020 with the adoption of AI and drones driving this change. Such sensors rely on precise Geospatial positioning which is extremely positive for companies like our own.
