Sewol via KIOST

The Sewol Ferry that sank over a year ago in April 2014 in South Korea with the tragic loss of many school children has been a national disaster for South Korea .

Our Managing Director , Mark attended the data acquisition of the Sewol in South Korea in late January and we have now delivered a well-received 3D WreckSight version of the wreck and a report containing an analysis of the current condition of the wreck for the purposes of informing the proposed lift engineering.

ADUS  worked in association with KIOST (Korea Institute Ocean Science & Technology) to jointly acquire data that we have processed in the UK.

Oil & Gas data processing

ADUS DeepOcean have been working closely with a large Oil & Gas operator in the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea and have recently completed processing and visualization of 3D data of seabed infrastructure. The data processed was used to illustrate the dimensional differences between the ‘hot’ & ‘cold’ states of pipework caused by thermal expansion during production.This information will prove key for the industry

The Rena was a container vessel that ran aground on 5th October 2011 on  Astrolabe Reef in New Zealand . She has presented a myriad of issues with regards to both the environment and the wreck’s effect on the local area .These arose not just from the resulting oil spill when she ran aground but also from the hazardous materials and general flotsam that were deposited on the reef.

ADUS DeepOcean completed the third survey in New Zealand .

Martin: Farewell, fair winds and following seas…

It is with genuine sadness that I’m writing about the death of my friend and colleague Martin Dean, one of the original co-founders of ADUS, and latterly Special Projects Director for ADUS DeepOcean. All here at ADUS DeepOcean will sorely miss his indomitable spirit, soft heart and razor sharp wit.

Martin had been battling with cancer since first diagnosed back in July 2013, and despite having been given a depressing prognosis initially, enjoyed a high quality of life in the two years since then, travelling for both work and pleasure, covering many miles on his beloved bike, celebrating his 50th wedding anniversary and becoming a grandfather.

Martin was an inspiration to many, including myself, in his long career in archaeology and latterly surveying, and also an inspiration to many in death too, by the manner in which he chose to deal with it – with typical humour, bravery, and positivity, surrounded by the love of his family and friends. A lesson for us all in the art of living in the present.

Martin’s funeral will take place on Wednesday, 1st July at 1.00pm in the Memorial Hall, Anstruther Road, Ceres, Fife, KY15 5NH.  Martin’s family have requested donations to Marie Curie Cancer Care through this page:  https://www.justgiving.com/Martin-Dean6/

RIP Martin.

    I have, and remain, a keen supporter of ADUS and the high resolution surveys that you have performed.

    ADUS has brought something novel to the industry and wherever it is exhibited, it has drawn interest as I am sure you know.
