Teledyne Odom Hydrographic’s official agent in Singapore and Indonesia, HYDRONAV SERVICES (Singapore) together with their Subsidiary Brunch, PT HIDRONAV TEHNIKATAMA, received an order of eleven MB2 sonars with integrated Applanix POSMV, along with Teledyne PDS software from the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Transportation.
The Ministry of Marine Transportation covers all commercial ports in Indonesia including Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara and Maluku & Papua.
“This is our biggest MB2 order ever, which we received on Thanksgiving day (November 26th) and which included delivery and training of all eleven systems in Indonesia by December 23rd. It has been a great experience working together with Hydronav Services, PT Hidronav Tehnikatama and The Ministry of Marine Transportation to make it all happen in such a short time”, says Grant Jennings, Sales Director at Odom Hydrographic.
More than twenty employees of the various Navigation Districts, which are under the Ministry of Marine Transportation, undertook both classroom and on water practical training in Teledyne PDS MB2 sonar operation and surveying techniques in December 2015. Over the next few months the eleven systems will be installed on vessels in around the country.
