Designed, built, and operated by ASV Global, C-Worker 5 is a platform to support construction and survey operations in combination with advanced hydrographic, positioning and communication systems from leading manufacturers such as Kongsberg Maritime.
The 5.5metre loa ASV (illustrated) is designed for up to seven days’ endurance at survey speeds of up to 7 knots, minimising launch and recovery operations and increasing survey efficiency, it is claimed.
C-Worker 5 will be hosting a variety of Kongsberg Maritime systems during the demonstration at Ocean Business, including the EM2040P multi-beam echosounder; the Seapath 130 heading, attitude and position sensor, the MicroPAP compact and portable acoustic positioning system and maritime broadband radio. Underwater positioning will be provided by Kongsberg Maritime’s cNODE transponders. This selection of sensors will show C-Worker 5’s capabilities as a survey and subsea positioning platform and enable visitors to see the ASView® control system in action.
