The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) has ordered two hydrographic survey vessels to operate in Danish inland waters.
To replace two obsolete survey vessels, the bespoke newbuilds by Tuco Marine Group are designed to accommodate two hydrography specialists and a dedicated helmsman.
Reaching speeds of more than 25 knots under full load conditions, the vessels are equipped with jet drives and stabilising features to improve agility.
The hull has been adapted to allow the vessel to operate in uncharted shallow waters and also improve anti-roll and directional stability by reducing turbulence and vibration.
The sonar equipment is fixed under the boat and recessed into the structure to protect it in adverse conditions.
The ergonomically-designed cabin has been designed to ensure easy communication under all operating conditions.
