/Successful CodaOctopus® Breakwater Construction Webinar

We are pleased to announce that our Breakwater Construction Webinar, held on March 2nd 2016, was a resounding success. There was good attendance and interest and we would like to thank each participant for taking time to attend this Webinar.

The Webinar was aimed at construction companies, design consultancies, operating companies, diving and marine survey companies and any other interested party involved with breakwater construction. The objective was to demonstrate the benefits of having the world’s only real-time 3D Echoscope® during breakwater construction.

The Webinar included commentary from Baird and Van Oord and featured factors that drive the design process together with typical issues encountered during construction such as water visibility, movement of block after lay and tolerance of block position.

Our President of Technology Blair Cunningham presented the CodaOctopus® solution, our patented real-time 3D Echoscope® sonar combined with our Construction Monitoring Software (CMS). This has been developed over the past 8 years and incorporates Van Oord's experience in breakwater projects across the world. Included in the software is the ability to aid the construction process as a management tool through visualisation of the design, aiding accurate block positioning and comparison between visualization of neighbouring blocks.

Many thanks go to Dave Anglin from Baird and Eric Peeters from Van Oord. Their input into this Webinar was invaluable.
