APEM adds aircraft to offshore fleet

UK: A fourth environmental survey aircraft has been added to UK consultancy APEM's fleet.

The Vulcanair P68C, built in Naples, Italy,  is to be used for general aerial surveys of prospective offshore wind-farm sites and is equipped with an RCD 30 camera. It joins three other aircraft which undertake sea surveys, habitat surveys and river surveys.

The APEM aircraft are based in Chester, north-west England, and as well as being able to survey waters around the British Isles can operate across Europe.

Dr Keith Hendry, MD of APEM, said: "Our new aircraft will bolster our Chester operation, which relies on some of the most advanced photographic technology in the world.

Remote sensing has considerable benefits over more traditional forms of ground or boat-based surveys, being a more accurate and cost-effective operation."
