John Fraser from NORBIT commented “We are grateful to Forth Ports for conducting a technically comprehensive evaluation period of many multibeam systems, which subsequently resulted in NORBIT technology being awarded the contract. Our system is gaining a strong reputation for data quality, and are no longer just well-known for high production quality in an easy to use small form factor.”

Alan McPherson, Chief Harbour Master said: “As the statutory River Authority for the River Forth and the River Tay, it is essential that we deliver a high quality service for our river users. The installation of this NORBIT multibeam technology for our operations ensures that we are at the forefront of survey provision.”
