Paul, Jaden and Matthew recently hosted the Polytechnic University survey camp in Sai Kung on board “ESL Survey 2”. Despite the untimely Virus the camp went ahead as scheduled and was enjoyed by all.
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.
