Surveying the seabed for UXO at Sandbank 24

Hans M has partaken in a crucial role as a survey vessel at Sandbank24 before the installation. Hans M performed precise magnetometer surveys and pinged unexploded ordnance (UXO) targets for three months. Hans M’s two schottels and bow aquamaster ensured that the survey was done with a high precision. UXO targets were later investigated by means of remotely operated vessels (ROV) also operated from Hans M’s deck.
