XOcean deployed its Uncrewed Surface Vessel in Irish WaterAn Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) was launched by Xocean off the Co. Louth coast, to undertake an environmental survey of the seabed in collaboration with Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT).
 
Ireland is fast-tracking the development of its offshore wind sector in line with commitments to increase offshore wind capacity to 3.5GW as part of the government’s ambitions to deliver 70% of electricity from renewable sources by 2030, as a result of the 2019 Climate Action Plan. This environmental research survey, utilising multi-beam echo-sounder sensors will be used to characterise the seabed in this area of the Irish Sea. Throughout the survey, a team of qualified mariners and surveyors monitored the USV 24/7 to ensure the safety of navigation and that the highest quality data was collected.
