WES can undertake conventional bathymetric surveys within the coastal zone, estuaries or inland waterways and has the expertise, equipment and software to enable high quality 2D or 3D contour charts to be created.



Inset below is our purpose-built 7m GRP survey launch ‘New Venture’ which is fully road-transportable and is based around the extremely robust and well proven ‘Cheverton’ workboat. This, combined with it's powerful twin outboard motors and forward cabin, makes for a very versatile and surprisingly spacious working platform.
