CodaOctopus Innovations at Coasts, Marine Structures and Breakwaters Conference

01 August 2009

Press release from CodaOctopus:

We hope you will join CodaOctopus at this year's Coasts, Marine Structures and Breakwaters Conference at the International Conference Centre (EICC) in Edinburgh, UK, where we will present a paper and have a technical exhibition stand (16th - 18th September).

The annual Breakwaters Conference is organised by the Institute of Civil Engineers and it addresses the design, performance, installation and maintenance of breakwaters, sea walls, jetties, piers and beach control structures. The conference also covers the latest material in the design and installation of structures for extracting marine and wind energy around near shore seas and coasts.

Join CodaOctopus on stand 18 where we'll have details and impressive images of recent underwater projects around the globe in which the Coda Echoscope 3D real-time sonar has played a unique role. We will share information about these diverse projects, the specific challenges and extraordinary accomplishments; these will be illustrated with a wealth of sample data and 3D movies.

We are delighted that our technical paper was selected from over 210 abstracts submitted for the conference. Entitled "Innovative Technique for Single Layer Armour Unit Placement: An Example of Increased Production Efficiency Whilst Improving Health and Safety" the paper describes the breakwater armouring work at the newly expanded LNG terminal at Ras Laffan, Qatar. Co-written by Stephen Auld (CodaOctopus Products) and Peter van Geldere (Van Oord Dredging and Marine Contractors), the presentation includes examples, photographs, statistics, comparisons, software screenshots and data which demonstrate the advantages brought to the project by the Coda Echoscope 3D real-time sonar.

The paper will be presented before lunch on Thursday, 17th September (Stream C - Breakwaters). It features amongst a full programme offering the latest research and most up-to-date case studies in coasts, marine structures and breakwaters and an electronic copy of the papers is available to all conference delegates in advance, to encourage informed discussion during the event. A printed copy of the conference proceedings will also be provided.
