Titan Discovery Coastal Nearshore Environmental Survey Specialist Vessel

MV Titan Discovery

MV Titan Discovery was launched in January 2014. Both vessel and crew have a wide range of experience and expertise within the hydrographic, oceanographic and environmental industries.

MV Titan Discovery has worked on numerous projects throughout Northern Europe.​

MV Titan Discovery’s shallow draft and ease of manoeuvrability ensure that she can work in the most challenging and shallow conditions.

Alongside a permanently installed Teledyne Reson SeaBat Dual Head T20-P multibeam system, she is also able to deploy a wide range of survey gear through a secondary moon pool, A-frame, side mount pole and Davit arms.

Key Features:

  • Wealth of experience

  • Multi-discipline

  • Multiple equipment mounting options

  • Grab sampling and mooring deployments

  • Shallow draft

  • Highly manoeuvrable
