Bathymetric surveys

Bathymetric survey services in Africa

Bathymetric or Hydrographic Surveying is the survey of physical features present underwater and entails measuring the nature of sea, lake or river floor. It is the science of measuring all factors beneath water that affect all the marine activities like dredging, marine constructions, offshore drilling... At Orbital Africa Ltd.,
we offer professional and reliable Bathymetric and Hydrographic Survey services aimed at obtaining data about water depth, the shape of the sea floor and coastline, the location of possible obstructions, and other features of water bodies. Our team of surveyors uses Multibeam Sonar/Side Scan Sonar Echo-sounders

We employ echosounders, GNSS, 3D scanners and drones

We employ latest and state-of-the-art equipment for the bathymetric surveys in Kenya and Africa at large.

Bathy survey outputs are hydro designs, layouts, river/sea floor profiles and CAD drawings

The analysis of sea/river or dam floor terrain from bathy data is vital for ideal desiltation works

Cost effective
Global coverage

Bathymetric surveys have got many applications

Hydropower projects

The survey is done to measure and determine the levels of siltation in dams for power generation.

Desiltation of dams

Bathymetric survey data can be analysed to aid in the desiltation of dams and ponds.

River & reservoir profiling

Analysed bathymetric data is used in establishing the contour of rivers, streams and reservoirs.
