Ports, harbours & inland waterways


Ashtead Technology have an extensive array of packaged solutions covering a range of port, harbour & inland waterway applications.

Ports, harbours and waterways require regular inspection and maintenance to ensure safe access and navigation.

Survey systems allow early and effective inspection to identify and effectively preserve ports, harbours and canals.

Our range of advanced survey and support services provide effective maintenance, repair and dredging for ports, canals and waterways to identify and plan remediation on potential problem areas.

Integrated solutions

Discover how Ashtead Technology incorporates market-leading technologies and innovative life of field services to help clients deliver complex projects.

Shallow waterways, canals and estuaries can fluctuate in depth due to silting and varying currents and tides. Accurately mapping of these waters is a specialist task and requires precise survey methods to gather data in shallow waters, often using smaller vessels and ASVs.

At Ashtead Technology, we understand these challenges and can tailor sensor and data software to meet project requirements. We continually strive to offer a significant commercial advantage, reducing survey time and maximising hydrographic data quality.

With a substantial fleet of technology, we cater to a variety of hydrographic survey needs and provide offshore support to maximise success.

Harbour inspection

Harbour structures degrade over time through consistent tidal movements, marine growth and utilisation. In addition, steel structures such as piers and jetties corrode due to fatigue, while masonry structures erode and collapse if not properly maintained.

At Ashtead Technology, we have a sustained history in developing solutions to remove marine growth and carry out visual, sonar, laser and ultrasonic based inspection, covering all aspects of structural degradation and fatigue.

With our ability to integrate systems for inspection and remedial operations, our focus is to reduce inspection time and minimise disruption to port and waterway operations through the use of best in class technologies and methods.

Through utilising our in-depth knowledge, we can provide best in class solutions for all environmental monitoring needs.

Successful marine resource management requires knowledge of currents, waves and tidal differences.

Establishing the water quality and pollution levels in ports, inland waterways and reservoirs is crucial to effectively manage operations.

Our expertise in environmental monitoring means we can deliver effective integrated solutions to gathering information that allows for early intervention and strategic planning of marine resources.
