Benefits of this service for your operations

For energy

Offshore, every second counts towards delivering a project on time. Our experienced teams understand these pressures and know how to get best performance from your investment in Sonardyne technology.

For defence

Naval operations often require specialist knowledge of techniques and understanding of one-off equipment configurations. That’s where our applications group come into play; in person and now remotely.

For science

Having our field engineer on onboard your vessel helps your research run to plan. And with remote services like ROAM, we can now be virtually by your side.


Our in-person field services cover and broad spectrum of requirements, from a site survey or shipyard visit to help identify the optimum location for equipment, to follow-on installation, commissioning, sea trials, training and client acceptance. Our Survey Support Group offer additional, specialised services for large and complex in-water operations including planning and project consultancy. Read more here

We have a globally distributed team of engineers, each an expert in their chosen product specialty and fully certified to work offshore. We handpick the person with the skills and experience best matched for job in hand, so you can be confident your system’s performance will be optimised, your staff will be left confident in its operations, and live operations are de-risked are far as possible.

And to ensure that your equipment always performs as it should, our service extends to checking the health of your Sonardyne system, including updating software and firmware and inspecting safety critical items.

Remotely located
Whilst not a complete replacement for in-person, many tasks can now be completed by our engineers working remotely, on-demand including; system calibrations, health checks, software upgrading and set-up checks. This lowers your costs, is more immediate (no travel delays), reduces safety risk to personnel, and helps reduces the carbon footprint of your operation. Innovations such as ROAM underpin this capability, whilst our Remote Data Harvesting Service using USVs can entirely replace the need to send personnel offshore altogether.
