Titan Discovery Coastal Nearshore Environmental Survey Specialist Vessel

MV Titan Discovery

MV Titan Discovery is Titan's newest acquisition to their fleet. Launched in January 2014, both vessel and crew have a wide range of experience and expertise within the hydrographic, oceanographic and environmental industry. Since she was launched, the vessel has worked on numerous projects throughout Northern Europe; covering the UK, Ireland and Belgium.


MV Titan Discovery's shallow draft and ease of maneuverability ensure that she can work in the most challenging and shallow conditions. Alongside a permanently installed Teledyne Reson Dual Head T20-P multibeam system, deployed through a central moon pool, she is also able to deploy a wide range of survey gear through a secondary moon pool,  A-frame and Davit arms.
