The RheoCable Method (TRM) is a new and totally unique method for determining the nautical depth in the presence of fluid mud. OEMG Global has partnered with THV Nautic, developer of the RheoCable method to bring the system to the Australasian region.
This case study describes the deployment Rheocable method, and the results obtained during the development and subsequent pilot program undertaken at the port of Zeebrugge by THV Nautic on behalf of the Belgian port authorities (Afdeling Maritieme Toegang, Belgium) and subsidised by IWT (Instituut voor Wetenschappelijk en Technologisch Onderzoek, Belgium).
The pilot program included a comparison of methods including the DensiTune and a dual frequency echo sounder. Click here to download the paper.
